Swing film clips


New Member
When I started searching the internet for dance related material, I liked to find free film clips of lindy hop on the internet but it took me some time to find them. Regardless of swing style I think many people would like to find what's out there. We could start with collecting links of free clips that have already been posted in the forums, plus a few of the lindy clips I've seen that I remember where to find... most of them I don't actually. In time I might dig up a few more.

You can add new links by posting in this thread. I will then edit new links into this first post to keep it updated. From now on, I'll try to put additions to the list first in each category so it is easier to spot them. Please also inform me if a link is broken, so I can remove it.

these are excellent clips! A friend and I will be performing a lindy and swing showcase at school. And we got plenty of wonderful ideas from watching these. I wonder if there are more links that can be posted because I love browsing them.

cheers! and keep swinging!
kansas49er, is that a lindy event or also does it also include WCS or something else? Just wondering what info to write about it, without having to watch all the clips.
Excellent site for learning Lindy moves -


(edit by Dance Mentor: this site charges a membership fee to view the videos, but there are a couple of free clips.)

{broken link removed} Lindy videos (some of them are really old black and white (TV) ones). Click in the left menu on "Les vidéos".
I have a few swing clips on my site at www.tcswing.com

There are some old video clips shot with my old Sony Mavica which are a minute or less. Plus, I have better stuff once I got my digital camcorder. There are full length shots of competitions from ALHC and from our local dance contests.

Hope you enjoy them!
Doug Silton also runs a move of the week clip. Sometimes its instructional, sometimes its just a demo. Either way, its worth checking out.


Its currently having some technical problems, but the archive of moves is working.
