Via www.sharonmdavis.com:   “Swing dancing” is an umbrella term for any dance done to swinging jazz music from the 1920s, 30s or 40s. The most popular (and spectacular) of these dances was the Lindy Hop - a partnered dance that evolved out of the Charleston in the late 1920s, in Harlem New York.   It is named after aviator Charles Lindbergh (1927 newspaper headlines read “Lindy Hops The Atlantic”). It is sometimes just called The Lindy, and some parts of the world knew it as The Jitterbug.

In a photo by Marvin and Morgan Smith, lindy hoppers Frankie Manning and Ann Johnson perform an airstep on the July 1940 cover of the magazine Harlem Tattler. Also featured in this issue was an article by Louis Armstrong titled "Special Jive".
