Lindy Hop

Also "Jitterbug." A popular dance that drew on a number of African American popular dances, including tap, the Charleston, the Texas Tommy, and others, and reached its peak in the 1930s and 1940s. It was a form of choreographed swing, adding aerial moves, breakaways and acrobatics to mime the bravura style of the big swing bands.
