Red Hot Lindy Hop is a vintage swing dance organization in Memphis, Tennessee. We hold dances featuring lindy hop, the original swing dance, plus charleston, balboa, and blues.
Lindy hop is a partner swing dance that originated in the 1920s and 30s in Harlem, New York City, and has spread worldwide since then. No matter your level of experience, we would love to have you at our dances--no partner necessary!
News and Upcoming Events
We hold monthly swing dances on the first Saturday of every month at the Rumba Room (Club Rumba) in downtown Memphis. We teach a beginner lindy hop lesson from 6-7pm, followed by dancing from 7-9pm. No partner is necessary, and complete beginners are encouraged to come! Our dances are open and welcoming to all.
In addition, we hold monthly drop-in practice sessions. Usually these are the Wednesday before the Saturday dances, from 6-8pm, but you can come and go as you please. This is a time to get some extra swing dance instruction in a pressure-free environment and brush up on your skills. Practice sessions are usually held at Memphis Rox, in the studio upstairs. As with our Saturday dances, no partner is necessary, and complete beginners are absolutely welcome! Practice sessions are free, though donations to Memphis Rox are encouraged!
