What are Salsa & Swing Dances?

Salsa is a sexy and sensuous Latin-American partner dance accompanied by upbeat Latin-American music.

Swing Dance (also called Jitterbug / Lindy Hop) is a happy and energetic Afro-American partner dance of the 1930s/40s accompanied by swing music, a form of jazz typically played by big bands. The big band had accompanied vocalists like Frank Sinatra and Natalie Cole, and is now revived and popularized again by Michael Buble.
