We represent an ALL-STAR collective of professional dancers that specialize in the Lindy Hop, Collegiate Shag, Balboa, Charleston along with the Early Social Jazz Dances that inspired all the dances that were born in America during the period of the 1920s – 1950s.
Our DANCE TEAMS are made up of some the most talented dancers in the nation.
The Lindy Hop All-Stars (LHAS) – The Lindy Hop All Stars are a high energy, high flying dance collective who specialize in the early American dance crazes such as the Charleston, The Lindy Hop, The Jitterbug, The Big Apple, and the Collegiate Shag. Their routines, which are inspired by the masters of the swing era, are marvelously nostalgic and feature high flying aerials and dynamic partnering. Their high energy shows can range from one short number to a complete one hour production.
The Lindy Hop All Stars enliven corporate events, weddings, birthday parties and they also offer school programs that are educational, historical and engaging with both young and old. And everyone leaves feeling their youth again.
The Rhythm Stompers – Our newest collective, The Rhythm Stompers bring the hottest and freshest talents to light with this avant-garde collective of swing specialists. These dancers feature the hottest trends in Swing, Collegiate Shag, Balboa, Boogie-Woogie and The Lindy Hop. And because this troupe represents so many wonderful styles, we have routines that are ready for prime time from the Early American born social dances all the way through to the Present Day Trends and Styles.
The Rhythm Stompers have been featured at Jazz At Lincoln Center’s Rose Hall, Hudson River Park’s Moondance, Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing, The Paramount, John Jay College, Swing Remix, Salute To Seniors at The Westchester County Center, and a multitude of special events. BB King’s featured this team for a multitude of functions featuring American born music styles. And our members have performed around the world from The Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy, to The Hep Cat Holiday, England.
The Jumpin Jacks are a new student performance group led by award winning Lindy Hopper Paolo Pasta Lanna with contributing choreography provided by stars of the Lindy Hop world including Carol Callahan Fraser. The Jumpin Jacks Performed their premier routine on Friday DEC 7th, 2017 at Swing 46. The showcase was filmed during the first band break on the night when the JIVE ACES from ENGLAND appeared. The Jumpin Jacks train at You Should Be Dancing studios in NYC. The group is open to social dancers with experience in Swing Dance.

The Flying Camels – The Flying Camels are our newest team that specializes in The Collegiate Shag. They’re a collective of both pros and students and we train weekly. The Collegiate Shag is one of the most dynamic and exciting swing styles in the world and it’s got a wonderful history whose origin is rooted in The Fox Trot. That’s surprising for many because the dance is filled with kicks more indicative of The Charleston.
