Swing Dance History

It is believed that the origins of West Coast Swing are in Lindy Hop. Dean Collins, who arrived in the Los Angeles area around 1937 after learning to dance at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem, was influential in developing the style of swing danced on the West Coast of the United States, as both a performer and teacher.

Hand Dance History

Hand dancing, also known as "D.C. hand dancing" or "D.C. swing", is a form of swing dance that can be traced as far back as the 1920s, from Lindy Hop, to Jitterbug and to the 50's when Washington, D.C. developed its own version and named it Hand Dance. In 1999 it was formally recognized as the official dance of D.C. by the city council. Source:Wikipedia More ->
