Despite being named for an old, dead person -- Charles Lindbergh -- the Lindy hop is not just for old, dead people. Neither is it for old, almost-dead people who shuffle their feet at adult-rec centers with bingo callers yapping in the background. No, the Lindy has always been a dance for daredevils. Brimming with breakneck maneuvers set to a tempo that can reach 180 beats a minute, plus wildly creative and acrobatic "airsteps," the dance has in recent years started to attract young, fearless followers raised on bungee jumping and other extreme adventures.

Break out the vintage duds and swing into action at Club Red Swing, a 21-and-over, Gen-X-friendly affair. The cover includes a Lindy lesson that begins at 7:30.


Wednesdays, 7:30-11:30 p.m., 2007
