Texas Tommy Challenge (Level 1 – 5)

iLindy.com - Online Swing dance classes - Texas Tommy with Kevin St Laurent & Jo Hoffberg

We predominantly use the name Texas Tommy because if pays homage to the fact that the original Texas Tommy dance came out of San Francisco, California and traveled to New York City. In good Lindy hop tradition, the key element of the dance was then borrowed/stolen for Lindy Hop. Now we have a ton of variations based on the original concept.

Texas Tommy Lunge

The Texas Tommy lunge is simultaneously spectacular and dangerous. Start slowly and learn the shapes and technique before fully committing to this move. When energy is applied intensively at the proper moments, the power of lindy hop can shine through, but it's a fine line to disaster so proceed gently at first.
