The Lindy Hop  (named perhaps after Charles Lindbergh’s 1927 cross-Atlantic flight) evolved with swing music in the late 1920s.

Popularized by American servicemen in WWII, the Lindy Hop was  commonly known as the Jitterbug.  It could be danced wild and fast, often with spectacular airborne steps (as shown in this clip from the 1941 movie Hellzapoppin), or it could be slow and sexy.
