World Lindy Hop Day

Put on your dancing shoes and do the Lindy Hop, because May 26 is World Lindy Hop Day.

Also known as the jitterbug, Lindy Hop originated in Harlem, New York City in the 1920s and 1930s. The day commemorates Frankie Manning, who some consider one of the creators of the dance form.

Combination of Dance Forms

A combination of different kinds of dances, including jazz, swing, and tap, Lindy Hop is a two-person dance where the partners dance hand in hand or in an embrace to jazz music. Just as in jazz, there is some form of improvisation that takes place during the dance.

Going Through a Revival

Popular in the 1930s and 1940s, interest in the dance form declined until the 1980s when a number of dance groups around the world revived it by holding annual workshops, camps, and competitions.

How to Celebrate?

  • Learn how to dance the Lindy Hop.
  • Host a Lindy Hop dance party or participate in one near you.

Did You Know…

…that some people believe that the name, Lindy Hop, may have originated from the name of aviator Charles Lindbergh? Lindbergh was fondly called Lindy by the media and after he successfully finished his solo flight between New York and Paris, media headlines read Lindy Hops the Atlantic.

When my 88-year-old mother was called for jury duty, she had to submit to questioning by the opposing lawyers.

"Have you ever dealt with an attorney?" asked the plaintiff's lawyer.

"Yes. I had an attorney write my living trust," she responded.

"And how did that turn out?"

"I don't know," she said. "Ask me when I'm dead."

My husband is—how should I put this—cheap, once going so far as to reuse the freezer bags our grown daughter Molly left behind after a visit.

Needless to say, it gave me a start when, looking through the freezer, I found packages labeled steak, chicken breast, and Molly.

Following his motivational talk at a Weight Watchers meeting, my father noticed one client’s small son climbing onto a scale.

"Don’t go on that, Joey," warned the boy’s slightly older brother.

"It makes people cry."

I was in the back of our ambulance tending to a patient when we slowed to a crawl. Just ahead of us, a huge semi was hauling a house.

"Don’t you hate that?" said our driver. "When people are simply too lazy to pack."
