Athens Lindy Hop and Hood Groove, two groups of experienced dancers come together for the first time on the stage of TEDxAthens to combine two dance styles that may seem to be at odds with each other while they actually have many things in common. Athens Lindy Hop is a group of artists that brought the Swing culture in Athens for the first time in 2008. Lindy hop is the original swing dance of the 1930s and 1940s that rose up in Harlem, New York. More distinctly, the group focuses on preserving the tradition and historical culture of this dance tailored to the modern lifestyle and using innovative ideas and diversity in Swing dance styles. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
