Our team can provide you with all the technique necessary to get started, and after mastering the patterns both men and women will find swing a fun and exciting dance to learn and practice.
History of Swing
The Lindy (Swing) picked up where the Charleston left off. It had “swing-outs”, “break-aways” and shine-steps”. With the birth of “Swing” music in the mid 1930’s the Lindy climbed the social ladder. In August of 1935, at the Palomar Ballroom, bandleader Benny Goodman played a Fletcher Henderson arrangement of “Stompin’ at the Savory”. The rest, as they say, is history. The dance craze swept the nation, and depending on where you lived, it was the Jitterbug, the Lindy Hop or the Swing. Since those days, each successive generation has “discovered” the fun of Swing. This most uniquely American dance is enjoyed all over the world. To make sure that our team keep in tone with the styling and history of this dance style, they undergo regular training to ensure that they have up to date knowledge about not only swing, but our ballroom, salsa, wedding dances and tango.
