Track Descriptions:

 

Early Swing Track:

This track will include partnered style dances such as, Charleston and Lindy Hop.

The early years of swing began evolving before the 1920s but gained major popularity with charleston in 1923.  Soon to follow, in 1926, the “Black Bottom” briefly replaced the craze. Then Charleston steps were added to the "Breakaway" and renamed “Lindy Hop” in 1927, after Charles Lindbergh  hopped across the Atlantic Ocean.  Learn all of these styles and more in the Early Swing Track.

 

Solo Jazz/Solo Charleston Track:

Although the Charleston dance has been dated back to 1903, it became a worldwide frenzy in the height of the Ragtime-Jazz period of the 1920’s. The dance is thought to have originated with the African-Americans who lived on a small island near Charleston, South Carolina.  But now you don’t have to travel farther than the Solo Jazz/Solo Charleston Track.

 

Argentine Tango Track:

In 1921, The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse opened, starring Rudolph Valentino.  In the movie the sex symbol danced an Argentine Tango and catapulted the dance to stardom.  This dance was already a national favorite in it’s home country and France.  A new audience in the United States was hooked.  Get addicted!  Join the Argentine Tango Track.
