The Harlem Swing Dance Society (THSDS) is thrilled with their latest dance drives
for Harlem Youth:
Harlem's Lindy Hop Initiative
The Harlem Swing Dance Society is giving back culturally to Harlem Youth an experience they will remember, learning history in a fun exciting way. Currently Harlem Youth are at risk of losing their cultural identity with Harlem's signature dance art form. To help them distinctively make a new mark with their folk dance The Harlem Swing Dance Society is incorporating youth's new styles of dance with the authentic jazz steps. This dance exchange or SWOP will take place bringing excitement for all observers and birth to a new dance phenomenon!
Our Free Harlem Youth Dance Classes - or Harlem SWOP - will have students gaining a pride and confidence as their population is currently out of the loop with the Jazz, Lindy Hop and Swing dance culture (as it is still being done worldwide). By infusing enthusiasm and thier take on these dances they can be future ambassadors of a fresh new trend - and build a cultural art form to invigorate future generations to thier Harlem dance roots and history.
All donations towards this ground breaking and exciting work endeavor are greatly appreciated.
