Swing dancing always looks like so much fun! Its the kind of dancing they did to the Big Band music of the '40s. I begged DH to take classes with me a few years back (before kids), but he wouldn't. I think you'll have a blast - way more fun than wrestling!

Yes... swing dancing was to big band music. I think you'll love it!

I can think of two movies right off the top of my head that have swing dancing in them first is Blast from the Past with Brendan Fraser. The second is one of my all time favorite movies, SWING KIDS its more of a drama, but lovely.

Ooh Ooh Ooh!! I swing dance! Have been for over 12 years!!

It's the BEST DANCING EVER!! (in my opinion)

It's so much fun. Done to Big Band, jump jive, lounge and all sorts of music!

If you love moving and love "up" music, you'll love swing dancing :D

I'm actually going swing dancing tonight... :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Ooh.. some specific people to look up on You Tube to get the best examples of great swing dancing..

Marcus Koch & Barble Kaufer
Nathalie & Yuval
Frankie Manning (the man that started it all)
Lindy Hop (another term for swing dance)
Mattias Lundmark (one of the spunkiest world class swing dancers .. I've danced with him too :D)
Erik & Sylvia (great hollywood style swing dancing)


Anyway, before I get TOO carried away... :D There's some to get you started. I just love it so much, and get very excited when I hear of younger people just starting out.. :D ENJOY!!!

You are going to have so much fun! I have been "swing" dancing for 10 years now. The specific type of swing dancing that I do is the Lindy Hop. I think you'll be hooked in no time!
