A Century of Swing

Our longest running show features dance styles that grew out of America from the 1920s to the 1960s. It’s a presentation of social dances that begins with the Roaring 20s Charleston and continues through to the 1960’s Line Dances. Our presentation showcases these most creative American born jazz dances.

 

Details

Begins with an introduction by our narrator who speaks throughout the presentation of dances. Beginning with some of the earliest jazz dances, our demonstrations will include The Charleston, Chorus Girls acts, The Collegiate Shag and Balboa, The Lindy Hop and Jitterbug and certainly a few line dances from the 1960s, the period in our history when almost on a weekly basis a new dance craze would capture the nations interest.
