The History Of Swing In A Nutshell


Swing dancing has been around since the 1920s and was most popular up until the 1940s – hence the name “swing era.” There are hundreds of different styles of swing dancing, many of which were created during the swing era. Swing is most common in African American communities, though it was popular throughout the world during its time.

The most well-known of swing dances is the Lindy Loop, which originated in Harlem in the 1930s. Swing also refers to a style of jazz music. The term swing wasn’t used for dance until the second half of the 1920s
