SWING

Swing dance originated in Harlem and developed to the moving rhythms of jazz, causing listeners to WANT to move!  Swing is a style or group of dances with Afro-American Roots from the 1920s - 1940s. The syncopated rhythm of the music is lively.  Like jazz, it is play and improvisation!  Swing is a collection of dances that include the Lindy Hop, East Coast Swing, Charleston, Balboa, "Shag", Boogie Woogie, etc. A uniquely American dance form, Swing is now done all over the world.
