WHAT IS LINDY HOP?
Lindy Hop is Fun!
Lindy hop is a partner dance that emerged during the 1930s and 40s in Harlem, New York alongside Big Band swing and jazz. Just like the blues, this art form rose from the Afro American community and eventually became mainstream, spreading to Europe and the rest of the world during World War II.
A joyful and improvisational dance, it is a wonderful way to connect with a partner and with music. A few simple guidelines are all you need to get you started and swinging out!

LIM SING YUEN
Sing started lindy hopping in 1988 in London’s Jitterbugs club. Since then, she has won countless of competitions including the US Open, the American Swing Dance Championships and the Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown in New Orleans. In 1996 she started teaching Lindy Hop in Singapore and has grown the scene to become one of the most vibrant in the world. She teaches at workshops and competes in Sweden, USA and all over Asia. Sing is grateful to Timbre and High Notes for creating this beautiful synergy between musicians and dancers
TAN HONG WEE
Hong Wee started dancing in 2000, when his wife decided they needed some social life. (He found Lindy Hop both exciting and enriching; while his wife found Korean drama.) Finding joy in connecting and creating, Hong Wee wants to make Lindy sociable and fun. Live music, casual drinks and good friends make for an awesome evening!
Born in India, raised in Jakarta, and now a student of swing in Singapore. To Akul, there aren't many things that beat the feeling of sinking into a 140 bpm swing tune. Akul has been helping to develop the Jakarta Swing scene, teaching classes and dancing up a storm whenever he visits his family there. When Akul is not dancing (which is most of the time) he is either at work or obsessing over some beautiful avocados.
Alex started dancing Lindy Hop in 2013 and immediately fell in love with this happy, infectious dance. To her, being being able to laugh, whilst connecting with her partner and the music are the best things about Lindy Hop. The most joyful dances involve those with a live band, where the band and the dancers create energy and give inspiration to each other. She believes the world will be happier if more people danced Lindy Hop and wishes for everyone to give it a go, even those who think they have two left feet!
THOW XIN QIANG
Xin Qiang signed up for Lindy Hop classes in University not knowing it would become one of his greatest passions. He continually works on improving his dancing and teaching skills and has recently started performing to share his love of Lindy Hop to everyone.
Deborah began dancing lindy hop and balboa 12 years ago, while living in the US. Despite moving countries four times and the occasional foray into other partnered dances, swing dancing is still her number one passion. She loves the energy, momentum, and fun that lindy hop embodies, and constantly seeks to share that joy.
