Dancing in Denton
Swing dancing is a group of dances that developed in the 1920's, 30's and 40's — styles classified as swing include East Coast Swing, Charleston, Balboa, Shag, and Lindy Hop. These dances were originally done to swing jazz music, which has a syncopated rhythm. Swing dancing experienced a revival in the 1980's and 90's and is a fun way to stay active and to socialize.
