    Swing Dance Photodisc / Getty Images zSB(3,3) Swing dance is a lively style of social dancing in which a dancer often lifts, spins and flips his or her partner. Considered both hip and cool, swing dancing is a favorite among social dancers of all ages.
    Swing Style:
    It's not difficult to spot swing dancers...look for the couple with the biggest smiles having the most fun. Swing dance is characterized by lots of swinging, flipping and throwing of dancers. Because it is a non-progressive dance style because it is mostly performed in one spot, it is a popular dance for a crowded dance floor. Swing is a quick, fast-paced dance. Couples hold hands as opposed to placing hands on the shoulders or around the waist, as ballroom dancers do. Swing dancing takes a little practice, but once you learn the steps, you may never want to stop swinging.
    Swing Dances:
    The term "swing" refers to a variety of unique partner dances.

    Was ist Lindy Hop?
    Lindy Hop ist ein Paartanz aus der " black afro american jazzdance tradition " und wird zu "Swing-Musik" getanzt, zum Beispiel der Musik von Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, Glenn Miller, Ella Fitzgerald etc.. Lindy Hop erlebte in den spaeten Dreissiger- und Vierzigerjahren, also in der "Swing-Era" , einen enormen Aufschwung in den sog. "Ballrooms" wie Roseland Ballroom, Apollo Theater, Savoy Ballroom und Cotton Club in "Black-Harlem", New York. Benannt wurde der Tanz nach dem beruehmten Fliegerpionier Charles Lindberg, welcher 1927 mit seiner "Spirit of St. Louis" den sog. "Hop over the Atlantic" machte, den Flug ueber den Atlantik. Lind Hop ist u.a. auch der Grossvater des Rock'n'Roll und der Vater des Boogie Woogie. Lindy Hop bedeutet Freiheit in den Bewegungen, Improvisation und Tanzen auf Musik. Seit 1984 erlebt der Lindy Hop ein eigentliches Revival
