WHAT IS SWING DANCING?
Swing Dancing encompasses a variety of dances that were created from the 1920s - 1950s. The music of each decade is what inspired people to create these different dance styles. Most of these dances began in African American communities, with the exception of styles like the Balboa. These can be danced individually or mixed together, even in the same song! In most cases they are danced with a partner and it is incredibly social and fun!
