What is Swing ?

Posted on 31 May, 2012 at 14:43
As defined by the NASDE (National Association of Swing Dance Events)
 
NASDE Statement of Swing to be used to identify the presence of swing in the NASDE competition divisions.
 
Swing is an American Rhythm Dancebased on a foundation of 6-beat and 8-beat patterns that incorporate a wide variety of rhythms built on 2-beat single, delayed, double, triple, and blank rhythm units.
 
The 6-beat patterns include, but are not limited to, passes, underarm turns, push-breaks, open-to-closed, and closed-to-open position patterns.
 
The 8-beat patterns include, but are not limited to, whips, swing-outs, Lindy circles, and Shag pivots.
 
Although they are not part of the foundation of the dance as stated above, 2- beat and 4-beat extension rhythm breaks may be incorporated to extend a pattern, to phrase the music, and/or to accent breaks.
