Lindy Hop

taught by

H. Leon Raper

Comments will be appreciated


This step list will cover basic Lindy Hop plus some neat intermediate & advanced step patterns. Dance step patterns may have different names for the same patterns. That will be determined by the instructor. We will attempt to give alternate names, when known, and also give West Coast Swing equivalent names.

I am sure there are also many other acceptable paths to this common goal other than what I have defined here. I would like to see lesson structures created by others that make use of the Universal Unit System (TM).
