ALSO COMING IN MARCH: Thursday, Mar 7 & 14, 7-8pm - SWING

Born in the early 30's in Harlem New York, swing dancing was strongly influenced by the Charleston and other dances of the 20's. It is composed of both 6 and 8-count patterns and can be danced to a variety of music, from big band swing to 50's rock 'n' roll music. At the advanced level it's more upbeat form, Lindy Hop, can be done with aerial (overhead) steps which are choreographed and practiced.
