Let's Lindy Hop with Simon Selmon & Rusty Frank
Simon Selmon (London, UK) began Lindy Hopping in 1986 and is one of the hardest working and most influential Swing dancers, teachers, choreographers and performers in the world of Lindy Hop. Former dance Champ and Judge, he has numerous film, television and media appearances to his credit. Simon is the master of making difficult things easy and has taught 10,000's to dance.
Rusty Frank (Hollywood, California) has been Lindy Hopping since 1996. She began Tap dancing at age six and went on to study and perform with many of Tap's luminaries. She has appeared in numerous shows, taught and Lindy around the world, is the author of "TAP!" The Greatest Tap Dance Stars and Their Stories". She owns and operates On Tap! And runs some of the longest running Lindy programs in Los Angeles today: Lindy by the Sea and Rusty's Rhythm Club.
All accompanied by The Bill Elliott Swing Orchestra, one of the hottest bands on the Lindy Hop scene today.
The Let's Lindy Hop DVD was originally two instructional videos that have since been transferred to a DVD and now digitalised for a modern audience. However, you may notice the language used in teaching i.e. Ladies & Gents, He and She etc was the language used in classes when the video was made in the 1990s, which would be different from today where we use the terms Leaders and Followers. As the filming was done in the 1990s, you may need to allow for its dated look but what's most important is the dance hasn't changed and this DVD will teach you everything you need to know to start you on your swing dance journey. We have had lots of good feedback about the DVD from dance novices who haven't had many opportunities to take live lessons through to dance teachers who have found the techniques and teaching tips useful for their own classes.
