Shim Sham line dances are for the meek, Shag for the beach

Shim Sham line dances are for the meek, Shag for the beach

Swing is versatile, encompassing more than 30 cross pollinated #dance styles for every ability and #musical#taste.

If the tricky rotating 8-count of the Lindy Hop and the fast 6-count of East Coast Swing are too much for you, there’s always the bouncy, single step Jitterbug.

Wallflowers can try the Shim Sham Shimmy, a line #dance performed in a group, or sultry West Coast Swing which meshes with slower #country or #blues#music.

#Latin vibes best accompany Jive, while Shag steps are danced to #beach music.

Then there’s still the Susie-Q, Trucking, Boogie-Woogie and the Big Apple to master.  Getting back to swing’s improv roots, accomplished swingers devise fancy footwork of their own.
