Are you ready to be cool? If so, the Swing is a
“must learn” dance. As a non-progressive dance, the Swing is convenient on
any jam-packed floor. From its origin in 1927, the Lindy paved the way for
many more swing-style dances which developed, including the American Swing,
Boogie-Woogie, Hustle, Jitterbug, Jive, Rock and Roll, and West Coast Swing.
With post-war exuberance filling the air, it wasn’t long before youthful
energy was unleashed on the streets...dancing! Characterized by jumps,
spins, turns and throw-outs, the Lindy was seen on dance floors all across
America. Today, the Lindy has undergone many alterations and has been toned
down and incorporated into a ballroom format known most commonly as the
beats per minute
