Crazy Legs Lift

Author: kevinstlaurent

The name says it all, but remember it's the good kind of crazy. However, don't be the bad crazy and just try this with any partner. Limit this move to people you know, trust and have practiced with previously. So get crazy, but not too crazy...

Tandem Rainbow

If you love rainbows, you'll love this move. If you hate rainbows, just rename it for yourself and no one has to know. It's arm flashy and fun, but does require some solid Charleston balance technique.

Flea Hop

This might possibly be the move that Andy Reid is best known for. Never a social dance goes by that Andy doesn't execute a superb and musically inspired Flea Hop. One part rhythmic, two parts bouncy, all parts awesome.

Tandem Turn

A solid staple of a move for tandem position. It's straight forward and classic, but every Lindy hopper should know it inside and out. 

Leader’s Send Out V-Slide

Slides need the right conditions. One must have a cooperative floor, a supportive partner and we recommend high-quality slippery shoes. Kevin happens to be wearing a beautiful pair of Saint Savoy Shoes equipped with hard leather soles that allow him to slip slide the night away.

Sugar Push

Like the Swing Out, this is one of those fundamental moves that can easily be learned over and over again. The tension and compression dynamics can always be improved & refined. 

Savoy Kicks

This version is a suggestable side by side Charleston variation. We learned it by watching various southern Californian dancers both old and new. We love the flash and rhythmic variety it brings to the dance.
