What is Swing Dancing?

Swing dance" refers to any dance that is danced to swing music. Not every swing dance has "swing" in their name, and some dances that have swing in their name aren't swing dances by this definition. Many dances originated from swing dance, but have since strayed far enough from the original dance and music that we no longer consider them to be "swing dances."

Lindy Hop

Lindy Hop (or just “Lindy”) is what most people are talking about when they talk about “Swing Dance.” It’s an energetic dance that involves both 8-count and 6-count patterns with triple steps, as well as moves borrowed from the Charleston. Although performance Lindy Hop often involves lifts, tricks, and aerials, social Lindy Hop requires none of these things. Lindy Hop is characterized by a low, relaxed posture and a rhythmic bounce–or pulse–that matches the music it is danced to.
