Swing, sometimes referred to as Jive, Jitterbug, Rock-n-Roll or Boogie Woogie, is more formally known in North America as the East Coast Swing. The Swing is extremely adaptable, danced with a carefree style and a lot of circular rotation. The various possible rhythms are excellent training for quick footwork and spontaneity, adding comfort and ease to other rhythm dances. Once mastered, the East Coast Swing in its varied forms is fun and exciting to learn and practice.
