Swing classes and dances events near Essex

With the Charleston originating from the 1920s/30s, and Lindy Hop (Jitterbug) being introduced to the UK during WWII, the styles disappeared in the 1950s only to be revived again in the late 1980s.. The Swing category includes Balboa, Boogie Woogie, Charleston, Collegiate Shag, East Coast Swing, Jazz Steps, Laminu, Lindy Hop and West Coast Swing.
