Lindy Hop is an awesome dance — fun, fast, and flirty. Each Sunday around noon, a small horde of people come to Golden Gate Park and jive away to hep tunes. The crowd is friendly and inviting, so beginners should not feel intimidated — a beginner's lesson is even provided. Dancing away in the park under warm sunshine with great people, how could it be better?
Here's how: it's completely free. Isn't San Francisco great?
Lindy in the Park is the event. And if you can't get enough (or if you're in the east bay), there's a sister event on Berkeley's campus on Saturdays. Lindy on Sproul is the same deal, but different place and time.
Where: Golden Gate Park, and Sproul Plaza in UC Berkeley Campus
How Much: Free!
