Via www.sharonmdavis.com: “Swing dancing” is an umbrella term for any dance done to swinging jazz music from the 1920s, 30s or 40s. The most popular (and spectacular) of these dances was the Lindy Hop - a partnered dance that evolved out of the Charleston in the late 1920s, in Harlem New York. It is named after aviator Charles Lindbergh (1927 newspaper headlines read “Lindy Hops The Atlantic”). It is sometimes just called The Lindy, and some parts of the world knew it as The Jitterbug.
The Sock Hop got it's name from the school dances that were held in the school gym. Shoes were not allowed on the gym floor.
El swing es un estilo de jazz que se originó en Estados Unidos hacia finales de los años 1920, convirtiéndose en uno de los géneros musicales más populares.
