Swing Dancing for beginners
Swing dance is a youthful, energetic dance that has been popular since the early 1930's. Music from every decade since has inspired swing dancers to create different styles of swing dancing. This class will cover a popular and versatile swing dance style called East Coast Swing or Ballroom Swing. People also sometimes call it Jitterbug or Rock & Roll dancing. East Coast Swing is characterized by fast footwork, underarm turns, and arm wraps; and can be danced to a wide variety of music from every decade. Scenes with East Coast Swing can be seen in movies like Blast From the Past and A League of Their Own.
