East Coast swing dance classes
Swing dates back to 1927 -- it's music descended from jazz music, and its style varies from country to country. It is a livelier version of the familiar fox-trot rhythm. Swing's bouncy dance steps have also been known as the jitterbug, jive, boogie, rock and roll, and lindy. Collectively, they are known as swing. Join us to learn this fun and lively dance step. Bring a partner or come alone and be partnered up for this four-week fun class held from 8 to 9 p.m. Tuesday nights from Sept. 28 to Oct. 26.
