About Us

Founded in 2001, Naptown Stomp Lindy Hop Society is a non-profit organization devoted to teaching and spreading enthusiasm for vintage swing dances, Lindy Hop being the primary form.

Naptown Stomp is the only organization in Indianapolis that teaches vintage swing dances as they are socially danced in the worldwide swing dance community today. If you’ve ever taken swing dance lessons through a ballroom studio, you will find the material taught at Naptown Stomp lessons is quite different. As many ballroom studios adopted a standardized curriculum, much of the original flavor of swing dance was lost in favor of having system that blended well with ballroom traditions. We dance to the swingin’ big band sounds that the originators of Lindy jumped and jived to in Harlem’s Savoy Ballroom of the late 1920s and 1930s.

Naptown Stomp is organized by elected officers who volunteer their time to actively spread interest in vintage swing dances through club activities, lessons, and other forms of outreach. Since the first lessons back in 2001, Naptown Stomp has grown and continued to see excitement about vintage swing dancing spread throughout Indianapolis and the nearby swing dance communities.

Testimonials

  • I was able to learn a lot of new material, I found all of the material taught to be interesting. The instructors were available and happy to help with questions during the lessons and afterwards at the dance. I usually hesitate to ask instructors questions outside of class, but they seemed to encourage it!

  • As a complete beginner, your insight on the more technical aspects of the dance was absolutely invaluable. You made all the difference between feeling like I might be doing something wrong and having a good idea of what I should be doing…Barbie arms!!! 🙂
