May 26th is World Lindy Hop Day or Street Dance Day. Some claim the ‘Lindy’ got its name from Charles Lindbergh’s hop across the ocean and in a round-about way it may have.
The Lindy came out of Harlem, NYC led by “Shorty” George Snowden and Big Bea in 1928.
Suggested ways to celebrate: Get up and dance, listen to some cool jazz, make up a jazz name for yourself.
