Born in the Roaring Twenties, swing is a blanket term for fun, energetic dances meant to be performed to jazz music. The most well-known swing dances include the Lindy Hop, the Jitterbug, the Charleston, the West Coast Swing, and the Boogie Woogie.
Today swing is considered an American Rhythm dance. The East Coast Swing and Jive are the standard Ballroom Swing competition dances. The less formal "jazz swing dance" style evolved in dance halls and includes the Lindy Hop, Balboa, Collegiate Shag and Charleston.
Swing can be learned as a partner or single dance. Many contemporary jazz dance routines feature groups of dancers tapping, swinging and bouncing in sync. Whether you are interested in learning basic moves, having fun, or becoming a master, join us for this fun class!
