Experienced swing dancers combine some of the different styles listed below into their dances. Just as jazz music changes emotions and feeling through the song, dancers change styles within a single song. By getting familiar with these styles, swing dancing becomes more of a fun form of expression and less about isolated moves and patterns. See other dance styles towards the bottom of this page!
