So apparently I’m a hipster according to my friends. Though the term extends to everyone not sporting wranglers or knowing the latest music on the radio, I find myself happy with the label – especially since I swing dance and that for sure is the new cool. Lindy hop is the latest craze reemerging in the Tulsa community, introduced over 15 years by some passionate locals inspired by the wacky “gap” commercial showing kids lindy hop to the latest neo swing music at that time – cringe worthy music to the new lindy hoppers. Tulsa’s own Vintage Swing Movement has launched a new campaign designed to get more people dancing in Tulsa. Every 2nd Friday at Guthrie Green, they will host a beginner swing lesson along with a free public dance to vintage swing music. Come on….you know you want to!
