What is Swing? Swing is one of the most fun and energetic dance styles featuring fast footwork and exciting spins. Swing dancing is truly an American dance style. Influenced by jazz and big band music, swing dancing began in the 1920s in New York City and has evolved into a variety of styles such as Lindy Hop, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Jive and Jitterbug. Read our blog post to learn more about the differences between those styles.
