However ECS and even more so, WCS have one advantage in that they can be danced to different types of music where Lindy at least from what I've seen is pretty much relegated to swing and jazz or anything playing that type of rhythm (or am I missing something here?).
Now, one could argue that doing lindy to music that doesn't swing is detrimental to the dance and the dancer (hi Damon ), but to me, versatility is what makes it cool. That being said, my best dances tend to be to the "traditional" lindy music (here the versatility comes in again - the expressiveness of the music and/or the singer, pushing/pulling the beat that Damon talked about, fun breaks.) But don't underestimate the fun of doing lindy to whacky music
