DESCRIPTION: High energy beats and fast-paced dance moves are hallmarks of swing music, which exploded out of pre-war Harlem’s hotbed of youth culture and became a worldwide phenomenon. The genre crossed racial and cultural barriers to bring us popular dances like the Lindy Hop, the Jive, and more. SWING! celebrates this remarkable diversity to the beat of the most exhilarating songs of the period. But as this enthralling song-and-dance show makes abundantly clear, swing was never a time or place – it has always been a state of mind.
SWING! Presented through special arrangement with R&H Theatricals
Original concept by Paul Kelly. Original Direction and Choreography by Lynn Taylor-Corbett.
