First boogie boogie and rock dance festival in Barcelona with Nils and Bianca.
BOOGIE WOOGIE - The dance form was originally inspired by American Rock 'n' Roll/Lindy Hop dancing of the 1950s, but gradually developed its own European style and personality. Boogie Woogie is a playful and improvised couple dance, often in medium or slightly fast tempi, with a significant footwork based on musical interpretation. Boogie Woogie of today functions as a social dance, but is sometimes recognized even more as an established competition dance.
LINDY HOP - The Lindy Hop, named after aviator Charles Lindbergh and his solo flight from New York to Paris in 1927, is a rhythmical and groovy couple dance created to big band music in the Harlem ballrooms around the time of the depression. The dance form is based on a traditional lead- and follow structure, but opens up for an endless amount of improvisations and individual interpretations. The Lindy Hop can be danced to all kind of tempi, offers both closed and intimate patterns, traditional open figures, solo steps, and occasionally it takes to the air.
