About Swing Dancing and Holy Lindy Land

The exuberance and energy of dance in the US and Europe that emerged in the 1920’s reflected the youthful and carefree attitude that began to permeate city society at the end of World War I. New technologies spurred economic growth and prosperity, as well as feeding a new “modern” mindset. Frivolity was the rule of the day, with sports and celebrity taking center stage, motion pictures becoming the rage, and morals tangibly loosening everywhere. Dance bans and hemlines were lifted and the old formal ballroom dances of the previous decade were infiltrated with a style that reflected a break with tradition and the new post-war vitality.

Dance clubs became so popular that old musical classics were reworked into new dance compositions to satisfy the public’s unending appetite for dance music. Moves were picked up on-the-fly by getting out on the dance floor and copying steps; there was no formal instruction. The Charleston morphed into the Lindy Hop which morphed into Swing and everything was influenced by blues and jazz. It was a roaring good time.

Almost a century later, a group of swing enthusiasts in Israel started Holy Lindy Land, one of the driving forces behind Israel’s ever-growing swing dancing community. If you’re itching to “cut a rug”, Holy Lindy Land is your ticket. Staffed by a team of experienced and expertly-trained dancers and teachers, in just a handful of lessons, you too could be dancing the Charleston, Balboa, Swing, Lindy Hop, and more.  

But the fun isn’t limited to only those here long-term. Holy Lindy Land hosts weekly parties that are open to everyone, from beginners to expert and everything in between (for a small cover charge of 25 nis). World travelers and fellow swing dancers who find themselves passing through Israel are known to drop in on the weekly parties to spice things up.

This is a traveler’s dream: dancing, mingling, making new friends, listening to great music, and enjoying a one-of-a-kind experience with a core group of locals, as well as fellow travelers who share your passion.
