Swing Dance Workshop

Thursday Aug 16   02:00 PM to 03:30 PM (1 hour 30 minutes)
The dance we'll be learning a bit of is the "swing dance" that was most popular during the 40s big band era and until the early rock-and-roll years. It has been, and still is, known by many names. Some call it "rock 'n' roll dancing", but essentially the same dance was popular long before rock 'n' roll happened. Some simply call it "swing", but many very different dances are all forms of "swing dancing." The dancers on American Bandstand in the 50s just called it "the fast dance". At a dance studio today it'll likely be called "single time east coast swing"; in a studio that focuses on ballroom competition, you'll find a related dance called "jive." In many other places it's commonly called "jitterbug".   This is THE popular dance of the Retro-Hugo era. Roles are "lead" and "follow". LGBTQI+ welcome!
