Partner dancing to the Joy of Swing Music through many generations still provides a great exhibition for the interpretation of the complexity of jazz & blues music. It is ALL about the connection.
Swing Dancing is a joyous experience that fills the head & heart w/ bounce, movement, pleasure, exercise, silent but intense communication & a shared connection. Its pleasure is composed of multi-leveled tiers w/ many easily attainable plateaus. It is not about words, impressing others or being popular. It is simply the communication to others about the music we hear. While dancing its magic is that ALL the worlds problems seem to fade away as there is no place in the head for troubling thoughts- that is the magic of dance. Period. In closing: Dance, like life, is in a world of constant change and movment coming from who you are and what feelings your body can express in the moment. The more dance you learn the more you can express yourself in wonderful and varying ways, all without words, one step at a time.
