We all know that water drains in the opposite direction down under in Australia, but their lindy hop (swing dancing) is anything but backwards.
Check out the clip below—including teens and senior citizens—for some crazy fast footwork and awesome on-the-fly (no pun intended) fun moves.
Incidentally, Google Video now lets you rate, tag, and comment on videos. Nice!
And hey, interested in seeing some other fun clips and learning a bit more about this lindy hop thing?
Some great info resources

And some other fun video clips I just uploaded
Remember, none of this is rehearsed or pre-choreographed… it’s all spontaneously danced with input from the music and each others’ partner!
1) Playful style!
2) Ooooo bluesy!
3) More bluesy fun
4) Another entertaining group
5) Noni and partner have fun showing off 😀
About these clips
They were filmed with my old Canon SD550, with me (sadly) sitting in the back row of a big theatre. That explains some of the shakiness and graininess… but still, not bad for a little pocket camera AND a guy who just flew across the world a few hours prior to the show 😉
As always, your comments are welcome!
