Roots of Swing Dance
Swing Dance is a big term, because at it's core it means anything you're dancing to swing music! When we talk about swing dance though, we're usually talking about the dances that became popular when swing was king of popular music, starting with the African American dancers in the 1930s.
Swing dances are constantly evolving - from the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem in the 30s to the performances, social dances, and classes that we run today. Check out some of our favorite dancers doing their thing!
