Enjoy the lively rhythm of Swing at your Arthur Murray Dayton Dance Studio. The Lindy picked up where the Charleston left off. It had “swing-outs,” “break-aways” and “shine steps.” With the birth of Swing music in the mid 1930s, the Lindy climbed the social ladder. The dance craze swept the nation, and depending on where you lived, it was known as the Jitterbug, the Lindy or the Swing.
Salsa is the Spanish word for “sauce,” denoting a spicy or hot flavor. As a dance, it can be danced to a variety of rhythms. There is the “L.A.” or “On-1 Style” breaking on the 1 beat. And the “New York” or “On-2 Style” which breaks on the 2 and 6 beats of the music. Generally, salsa music encompasses many Afro-Latin rhythms driven by the clave (two wooden sticks struck together). Many of the Salsa patterns are closely related to those of the Mambo.
The Argentine Tango began in the West Indies and found its way to Argentina where it was stylized by the Gauchos to its present form. Today it is considered the “Dancer’s Dance” and is a favorite of all who learn it.
