This chapter reflects on the limitations of cultural appropriation as a viable way to come to a sociological explanation for cross-cultural engagement. It offers some possible alternative orientations that could potentially open up common ground and hybrid space for new possibilities of racial engagement, interaction, and connection that emerge through “positive” racial representations. This is not just an avenue of analysis for the Lindy Hop, but a model for exploring racial interactions at their localized level of engagement beyond the realm of dance, in all spheres of cultural-racial intersections.

Keywords:   cultural appropriation, cross-cultural engagement, racial representations, Lindy Hop
