Prepare yourselves for some awesome dancing.

This past July, Montreal Swing Riot invited local lindy hop dancers and hip hop dancers for a crossover dance battle. The results were electric. Warning: There is some serious talent here and may incite you to take either swing or hip hop dance classes, or both!

One of the best parts is part of the battle included each group of dancers dancing to the others usual type of music (see second video). So the hip hop dancers danced to some old school Jazz and the lindy hoppers did some swing outs to hip hop. Très cool.

Enjoy!
