The human body can move like this, and, it appears, have fun doing it.
Probably the greatest Lindy hop sequence ever filmed. Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers from the 1941 film Helzapoppin.
I can’t get over how fast they’re moving, and with such accuracy.
The Lindy hop is an American dance which was born in Harlem, New York City in 1928 and has evolved since then with the jazz music of that time. It was very popular during the Swing era of the late 1930s and early 1940s. Lindy was a fusion of many dances that preceded it or were popular during its development but is mainly based on jazz, tap, breakaway, and Charleston. It is frequently described as a jazz dance and is a member of the swing dance family.

I mean, Wow!
