The Lindy Hop is a dance performed in Dancing with the Stars.
A member of the Swing dance family, the Lindy Hop was originated in the 1920s in the United States in Harlem, New York. A fun and highly energetic dance, it includes many of the popular swing moves such as rock steps, triple steps, and lindies. Difficult lifts and partner-assisted flips are allowed and encouraged.
- This is one of the few dances that allows lifts to be completed.
- No couple has ever scored a perfect 30 in this dance. Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani scored a 29/30 in Season 8.
- A similar dance, the Jitterbug has also been performed on the show.
