The popularity of Swing music in the 1930s & 1940s helped establish Swing Dancing as the “it” dance style of the day.  East Coast Swing was derived from Lindy Hop, but was originally dismissed by dance studios as a street dance & a fad.  In 1942, the dance was officially recognized by the two main dance associations at the time who acknowledged that Swing Dancing was more than a fad and that there was enough interest to create a more refined, standardized version that could be taught alongside the other official ballroom dances.

East Coast Swing is known as a rhythm dance with a bounce (lilt) action & is usually danced to faster tempo music in 4/4 timing using both 6 and 8 count patterns.  There are 3 basic rhythms to East Coast Swing which are Single Time, Double Time & Triple Time. In this video, we focus on the most popular of the three which is Triple Time Swing.  The basic 6 count pattern of Triple Time Swing is 1&2, 3&4, 5, 6 and the basic 8 count pattern is 1&2, 3, 4, 5&6, 7, 8. Don't worry, we explain all this in the video.

Swing Dancing, both East Coast Swing & West Coast Swing, is a great way to meet people & build confidence.  Be sure to check out our East Coast Swing Dance Song Favorites for some great songs to dance to.

Dean's Dance Tip for February
How to Dance Tip Photo
Do you feel off balance & wobbly when you dance? Make sure you aren’t looking at your feet. Looking down pulls you forward because your head weight is no longer over the center of your body.  It's a common mistake for beginner dancers.  Look straight ahead, with your head centered over your spine, and see if that helps correct your balance issues.
