What is Swing Dancing?
Swing is a fast paced, dynamic dance that originated in the United States in the 1920s to 1950s.
It is commonly danced to Swinging-Jazz music, and has many variants including Lindy Hop, East Coast Swing, Charleston, Balboa & more. Although commonly danced as a partner-dance, swing also comprises solo jazz dancing & group routines.
