This exhilarating dance is one of the most entertaining to watch, especially during competitions. Boogie Woogie is usually playful and often improvised mainly with the song’s lyrics you’re dancing to.

Boogie Woogie is known for its fast tempo creating a very entertaining performance.

With the beat of American Rock n’ Roll, Boogie, and RnB, you’ll be amazed by the incredible footwork used in this type of dance. Plus, the dancers’ interpretation of the song makes it even more entertaining.

The difference between Boogie Woogie and Lindy Hop is the style.

Boogie Woogie is dancing more on high toes than Lindy Hop and the choice of breaks in the dance. It is also based on the basic six-count beat, while the latter is in eight counts. Nonetheless, these two dance styles are so fun to watch.

World-class duo Nils and Bianca are just one of the dance pairs that do both styles.

In this Boogie Woogie, they again showed us why it is a joy to witness their performance.

They danced to the tune of ‘Choo choo Ch’boogie’ during a Swedish Dance Competition and it is something that will surely entertain you.

It’s just a minute and 45 seconds short, but it will take your breath away.

The performance started with Nils imitating the intro of the song.

By then, you’ll know that this performance is whimsical or comical in a way. The way Nils mouthed every ‘wahoo’ of that intro could already send giggles your way.

Then, they started dancing to the song’s first verse.

Immediately, you can see that the footwork of both dancers is impeccably moving to the beat and in sync. The quick tempo makes you appreciate every turn they make as they pull and let go of each other right in the rhythm.

The performance started to pick up, and the people were now clapping with the song.

Their set of turns drew people’s attention, with Nils leading the way and Bianca turning with precision despite the speed of each turn. She still lands it and is right on focus.

As the performance progresses, their footwork is getting faster than ever.

You can never fathom how they get all that footwork done. There’s a series of steps there that, even if they were dancing separately (not holding on to each other), are perfectly synchronized with every tap, step, and turn.

And here’s come the comic part of it!

The crowd got more entertained as they added a bit of comical twist to it nearing the end.

Their facial expressions, body movements, and all that up-tempo tap-step-tap and turns got the people laughing and on their feet.

With the pandemic around, they missed performing in competitions and front of the crowd.

They’re currently busy with their dance videos and are asking support from people so they can continue to do the one thing they’re passionate about.
