    Those people are in pretty good shape lol. Lot of stress on the body for some of those moves.

    Also!! Bit of trivia, the man in the overalls near the end is Frankie Manning. He`s long been considered one of the founding fathers of Lindy Hop.

    I have seen this movie scene before and I have also seen that name Hellzapoppin before. It was the name painted on a B-17 Flying Fortress in WWII. I thought it was an appropriate name for a bomber. But now, 2 + 2 finally equals 4. So that is where the name came from.

    Bad Ass! Notice all the ladies are wearing flats. But they also had long beautiful legs, so, there`s your trade-off.

    @misfit77 but that`s another dance. The video you`re referring to shows a jive, the video here is swing dance. To complete the series I give you a charleston
