If it takes only a hint of good news to get your feet tapping, we have something that will twirl and whirl your world around. Mother City Hop, a four-day dance festival of parties and workshops, is coming to Cape Town. Celebrating the lindy hop, a jazz dance that originated in Harlem during the 1920s, this event draws people from around the globe to swing and sizzle down south. You don't have to be a pro or even particularly excellent at hand-eye coordination to fit into the festivities. A jam-packed schedule allows for taster classes as well as outdoor dancing sessions where your only aim should be to let your hair down. And maybe bust out a new move or two.
