  • In Belo Horizonte, Brazil there was a recent lindy hop versus b-boys battle. Wish there was some video of the event! UPDATE 4/13: the BeHoppers sent us video! See below.


  • Did you know April 30 is International Jazz Day? In 2011, UNESCO officially designated April 30 as International Jazz Day to “highlight jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe.” Sounds like a worthy goal to us.
