Who are Saigon Swing Cats?

We are the cool Cats of Saigon who love Swing dancing, a group of social dances that developed with the swing style of jazz music in the 1920's - 1940's. In Saigon, we dance the Lindy Hop most of the time, a dance style originated in Harlem, New York City within the African American community in the early 1930’s , the Charleston, Blues and some Balboa. We belong to the wider global community of swing dancers, lindy hoppers, authentic jazz dancers around the world who share the common values of the Lindy Hop left as a legacy from the original Lindy Hoppers.
