Welcome to the MIT Lindy Hop Society

Lindy Hop Logo

Lindy Hop is the original form of swing, which originated in the 1920's ( more info ). Lindy Hop is still thriving, and vibrant dance scenes exist in nearly every major city in the US. Dancing takes place in the Boston area from 3-5 nights per week ( local calendar ). A national calendar and blues-specific calendar may also be of interest.

We dance to a wide variety of music ranging from traditional swing to blues to hip-hop. Our dances are held once a week on Wednesday nights usually in the student center on the second floor. Dances go from 8:30 pm to 11:30 pm. Please check the schedule for changes or cancellations.

Other places around town to learn swing dancing: New School Swing, Boston Swing Central.
