Leon James & Willa Mae Ricker Dancing the Lindy Hop, Photographic Print

The Lindy Hop is a swing dance based in African-American “Texas Tommy” and “Charleston” dances, with both solo and partner moves, that appeared in New York City in 1927.

Quote from African American poet Langston Hughes; “The lindy-hoppers at the Savoy even began to practice acrobatic routines, and to do absurd things for the entertainment of the whites, that probably never would have entered their heads to attempt for their own effortless amusement. Some of the lindy-hoppers had cards printed with their names on them and became dance professors teaching the tourists. Then Harlem nights became show nights for the Nordics.”
Langston Hughes, The Big Sea
