Akemi Kinukawa and Lewi Gilamichael are experienced dancers, instructors and performers specialized in Lindy Hop, the original form of Swing Dancing created to the sound of big band music in late 20s to early 30s in Harlem, NY.  They have been teaching Lindy Hop at some of the major dance studios in the city, including Brooklyn Swings, You Should Be Dancing Dance Studios, and Swing Dance Astoria founded by Akemi. 

Swing Dance Astoria also partners with America’s Sweethearts to present “Swinging with the Sweethearts,” where you can take a beginner’s swing dance class and then use what you learned to dance with America’s Sweethearts! Check upcoming dates here.
