Swing dance is a lively style of social dancing in which a dancer often lifts spins and flips his or her partner. Swing dancing is a favourite among social dancers of all ages. It is mostly performed in one spot; it is a popular dance for a crowded dance floor. Couples hold hands as opposed to placing hands on the shoulders or around the waist, as ballroom dancers do. Swing dancing takes a little practice, but once you learn the steps, you may never want to stop swinging.
