Dance 4 Inclusion E-Learning Compendium

The Dance 4 Inclusion project promotes integration through dance, focusing on Lindy Hop.


Of all of the swing dances, Lindy Hop is probably the most famous. Lindy Hop is a partner dance of African-American origin that emerged in Harlem, New York, towards the end of the 1920s.


It combined the movements of African dances with the structure of European dances. This phenomenon transversed racial barriers and bears incredible historical significance. During the golden era of swing, Lindy Hop was a huge phenomenon and played an important role in American racial integration.


The Dance 4 Inclusion E-Learning Compendium provides best practice advice on curating and maximising your own dance workshops and events to promote inclusion. It explores Lindy Hop dance and jazz culture's impact on integration. It is a result of the Erasmus+ project Dance 4 Inclusion, brought to you by Retro Festival and Teach Solais Community Development.
