A stylish jazz step adapted for Lindy Hop. It's relaxed and full of attitude. So pigeon-toe your feet, smile, and start Truckin'.

Savoy Kicks

This charleston basic variation uses full-time and 4-count rhythm. It starts with a rock step and then transitions to some fun hopping and toe-tapping variations.

Crazy Legs

Walk and flap the legs and on every beat. Just don't get too crazy and hurt yourself. Bonus points for high knees and creative facial expressions.

Break a Leg

Lindy Hop is one part serious and two parts fun. This move is supposed to look like you injured your leg and you have to get off the dance floor to get some ice. Be precise with the rhythm, but have fun with the styling.


Love like you've never been hurt, sing like no one is listening, and dance like a scarecrow. Using 4-Count and half-time rhythm, this silly move starts out conventionally and ends with some attitude. Your goal is to be as much like a scarecrow as possible.

Camel Walks

An opportunity to channel your inner camel. It says walks, but it's a whole lot more. Pay attention to the details to really get this move correct.

Killer Boogie

This impressive footwork styling is a challenging mix of triple rhythm, constant weight shifts, and twisting. Not really designed for super-fast tempos, but mid-tempo music and below can really be fun.


Originally done by tap dancers, this soft-shoe version is just as fun and impressive. It uses full-time and half-time rhythm.

Paddle Wheel

This is a great variation of your charleston basic. The name inspiration comes from the big paddle wheel used to propel the paddle boats up and down the Mississippi River. Play with different arm positions and rotations to add variations.

Scissor Kicks

Fundamental to most dance forms and used throughout Lindy Hop, Scissor Kicks might be the best move to really "cut a rug" with ;-). Basically, it's a continuous kick-ball-change.
