Saturday Swing Night – July 2019

Swing Dance originate in the 1930s taking on different forms: Collegiate Shag, Lindy Hop, Charleston, and Balboa. Today, Lindy Hop is the most popular one left. While fast Lindy Hop is an upbeat and a true test of trust and stamina, the swing dance basic is fun, light-hearted, and quite entertaining. The basic steps (rock step, triple step, and more) will be taught in the first half of the night. The remainder will see music playing and the group swing dancing with each other. But let’s not hog a partner, dance with each other into merriment, and start the first swing scene in Karachi!!
