Swing dancing was created by African Americans in the early 20th century. Swing dancing is often referred to as an ‘umbrella’ term and it encompasses a varied range of styles danced to Swing music and they’re often mixed on the dance floor. Swing music had its heyday from 1935 to 1946 when Big Band swing music was at its peak in the United States but has been around since the late 1920s.Detailed description:
