The Orient Lindy Express 2015 concluded with an exciting Strictly Lindy Finals competition. The event brought together talented dancers from all over the world to showcase their skills in Lindy Hop, a popular dance style characterized by its energetic and playful movements.
The Strictly Lindy Finals, held on December 20, 2015, featured 12 couples who had qualified from the previous rounds. The couples had to perform to live music provided by the Tuba Skinny band, creating an electric atmosphere filled with the sounds of swing and jazz.
The competition was divided into two parts, with the first part focusing on showcasing the couples' skills in choreographed routines. The second part required the couples to freestyle to a randomly selected song. The combination of the choreographed routines and improvisation highlighted the dancers' ability to both follow a planned routine and respond to the music in the moment.
The Strictly Lindy Finals were not only a celebration of the couples' skills and talent but also a testament to the growing popularity and international reach of Lindy Hop. Dancers from countries such as Sweden, France, the United States, and Russia came together to share their passion for this energetic dance form. The event provided a platform for these dancers to showcase their abilities and broaden the appreciation for Lindy Hop globally.
