Hi there. We are Derek and Jane of South West Lindy Hoppers in England. We were the first Lindy Hop club in the Devon area and have been teaching in Exeter and Totnes for over 10 years.

We are involved in many events, dance to local big bands and show off our dancing in Exeter City Centre with our 'Lindy in the City'.

Our video features our Lindy Hoppers from Exeter and Totnes clubs, some have only been dancing for 2 - 6 months!

The video shows many of the historical sites in Exeter.

Exeter is located on the River Exe and is one of the most historical sites in the UK. The famous cathedral was founded nearly 1,000 years ago. There are many Roman and Medieval remains still to be seen around the city. Exeter University is world famous for its research programmes.

So if it's Lindy Hop, sunbathing on sandy beaches, water sports, walking on Dartmoor National Park or having a traditional Devonshire Cream Tea (scone with Devonshire clotted cream topped off with jam, plus a pot of tea) and relaxing, then Exeter is the ideal place to stay.

Special thanks go to Alan Tibbitts of DVX Productions our director and cameraman for his expertise and creativity in producing this video. His use of a drone was truely innovative.

Land Securities of Princesshay Shopping Centre who support us in our 'Lindy In the City' events.

Exeter Customs House (Tourist Information Centre) down on Exeter Quay on the River Exe, where there are many restaurants, shops and water sport activities available.

Butt's Ferry, for allowing us to dance and wobble across the river, probably for the first time in its 300 year history!
