Acknowledging the roots of swing dances and jazz music. https://t.co/5ghFVbIiSY

We acknowledge that the core dance we share comes from African American culture, as does the jazz music we love. We are deeply grateful to be able to experience this amazing art form.
We endeavour to continue educating ourselves about the history and social context from which jazz and lindy hop grew, and in which it exists today, because that understanding helps us to honour the roots of the dance, as we experience it today.
