This course is designed for training in the fundamental skills of swing dance technique.

The second objective will be the exploration of the dynamics of lead and follow (action and reaction) as they apply to movement. Lastly, through class lecture, discussion, readings, and videos, students will discuss the social/historical perspective of swing dancing in the United States.
