Hellzapoppin, 1941. Lindy Hop, ft. Frankie Manning.

These folks had some serious moves.

I just did a taster class in lindy hop which was hugely enjoyable, but thankfully no way as fast and furious as the legendary Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers in this clip (I’m sure Slim Gaillard is featured too).

One of my partners must have been 70 at least, but definitely had more energy than me. Amazing!
