What exactly is swing dancing?
Swing dance is a lively style of dancing that is very social and usually entails a lot of lifts, spins, and/or flips. Swing dancing is widely recognized as being a hip and cool dance, even though it is an older one. You’ll definitely recognize a pair of swing dancers while out and about!
There are tons of different variations of swing dancing including the Carolina shag, Jitterbug, and perhaps the most popular form of swing, the Lindy Hop. Swing dancing is tons of fun and a great way to meet people.
It became popular during the 1920s with jazz music, but eventually, it just became “music that swings” that is qualifying swing music. In this video, we see young Jack and Jasmine Willis show off swing dancing like no other, which is especially impressive due to their age.
