Diana Jo Rossano’s definition of Swing Dancing Swing is a broad term for this style of couple dancing. Like saying, “Apple.” There are different types of apples: Granny Smith, Gala, Red Delicious, etc.
There are many types of swing, too. 1) Lindy hop named after Charles Lindbergh that “hopped” the Atlantic back in 1927 is an extremely fast music. 2) East Coast Swing that looks more like the dance from “Happy Days” of the 50’s & 60’s music. 3) West Coast Swing, mostly danced to blues and to pop music.
