SWING DANCES 

The ideal social dance – easy enough that you can be having fun the day you start, rich enough to interest and captivate for a lifetime!  Swing dances originated in Harlem in the 1920s alongside the introduction of the swing style of jazz music of the day. Made popular then by Big Band music,  

Swing dances evolved from the Charleston and Lindy Hop; they include:  

EAST COAST SWING

Fast dancing to swing music, rock n’ roll and boogie-woogie, the East Coast Swing it’s infectious and fun.  

 

WEST COAST SWING

Danced in a slot (narrow line), the West Coast Swing is danced to different rhythms of music like rock, blues, pop, funk and western. It allows the dancers to improvise, it’s one of the few dances that allows this.  

 

JIVE

What sets Jive apart of the rest of the swing dances is the simplification of the footwork. It can include moves from other ballroom dances like Salsa and Tango.
