Dance Dance Dance
Lindy hop is a swing dance that was invented in New York in the late 1920’s. Think jitterbug, and you have an idea of the type of dance lindy hop is.
100 kilometers north of Stockholm lies the village of Herräng. 500 people live in Herräng. It’s a ghost town, dead and beautiful.
But every summer the village comes to life when hundreds of people from all continents come here to dance lindy hop at the annual Herräng dance camp.
In 2007 I joined them for a week to see if I could catch the jitterbug.
