About This Project

Below are some different points we would like you to know before browsing the site. Please take them into consideration and keep an open mind. 😉

  1. We are dancers passionate about lindy-hop and vernacular jazz. We are not professional dancers.
  2. We see this website as a tool for sharing and learning. A way to spread our passion for the dance we love.
  3. We hope that the wider community will help expand on this bank by sharing their knowledge with us.
  4. We included steps that might not be vernacular jazz steps, but which we often see in modern solo jazz.
  5. We apologize if we sometimes start on a different beat as the one you know or the reference.
  6. We don’t think this website is a replacement for a teacher. We want to encourage everyone to never stop take classes!
  7. To avoid property rights issues, we decided not to use music in our videos.
  8. Feel free to tell us if any of the reference or didactic videos we’ve included don’t seem correct, relevant, or appropriate to you. We welcome feedback and suggestions for improvement!
  9. We ask all to remain civil and courteous. Irrelevant or inappropriate comments won’t be published.
  10. Our community here in Montreal is largely francophone – all our counts are in French.
