What is World Lindy Hop Day?

The universal language of the Lindy Hop (aka swing dancing or jitterbug) features creative and exhilarating movements that allow partners to connect in a way that uplifts the spirit, promotes human connection, and develops generosity. It allows dancers to meet in a positive environment that supports the building of bridges on personal, community, and global levels.

Wherever Lindy Hop is danced, people of diverse backgrounds will treat each other with respect and warmth. The history of Lindy Hop at the Savoy Ballroom will be made known to dancers and non-dancers everywhere.  Grounded in unity and collaboration, World Lindy Hop Day, celebrated every May 26th, encourages people from all different backgrounds to enjoy and share the many benefits of this joyous and enduring dance.

The 2014 celebration marked Frankie Manning (the Ambassador of Lindy Hop)’s one hundredth birthday and was the formal inauguration of May 26th as World Lindy Hop Day! Record of the momentus centennial celebration can be found at Frankie100.com.
