What’s Swing Dancing?

Swing Dancing is a term for a number of dances that first became popular in the 1920s, 30s and 40s.

The best known of these dances is the Lindy Hop, a popular partner dance that originated in Harlem, New York. This fun dance style has made a roaring global comeback since the 1990s, and is now danced in places from Southland to Sweden and everywhere in between.
