People didn’t think much of John Lindo and Deborah Szekely when they danced West Coast Swing together in events in the 1990s. All of this was because the dancer himself was so tall.
But he and his partner were the ones who got lucky and won the dance competition. One of those days helped John get the fame and attention he has now.
It’s fun to watch Lindo. He has been dancing for more than 20 years, and country-western was where he started. He then got into West Coast Swing, where he became very well known.
The West Coast Swing is a dance for two people, and it’s important that both players are in sync with each other. This type of dance came from the west coast of the United States, as the name suggests. The history of West Coast Swing says that the dance as we know it today came about in the 1960s as an ode to Lindy Hop.
Since the video was shared in 2008, nearly nine and a half million people have watched Lindo dance.
