Swing Dance Lessons Orlando - Private Dance Lessons only. Please call: 407-297-9048 - sorry, no texts, please. Just starting your swing dancing? Two left feet is for you. I’m 20 minutes north of Orlando, Florida. One mile west of I-4. Did you know there are several types of swing dancing? Yes, there are: Here's a short overview. Use the keywords here to fine-tune your search on YouTube.
1920's and 1930's: If you like the type of swing dance classes that do a lot of jumping up and down or hopping, then the style of swing you are looking for is called, "Lindy Hop." Why is it called that? It was a dance named because Charles Linberg "hopped" the ocean.
If you want to learn the Lindy Hop, then Google "Flying Foot Works" near the University of Central Florida (UCF) area. There are many dance teachers who teach this dance, but Two Left Feet Dance Lessons is NOT one of them.
1950's and 1960's: If you like the type of swing that looks like the nostalgic dance or something you might see on Happy Days, then you may want "East Coast Swing." It is slower paced than the Lindy Hop mentioned above. You may always find East Coast Swing dancing at a wedding or when going to a bar/lounge that offers a dance floor. See the video to the bottom right for an example.
1970's and 1980's: If you like smooth jazz music that has a nice beat, that will fall into the category of "West Coast Swing." You can tell the difference between the East Coast Swing and the West Coast Swing by one major difference. The West Coast swing is danced in a "slot" or in different words: the follower goes up and back while the lead remains in the middle. See the video to the top right for an example.
All the above-mentioned swing dancing are still played today in the 21st century. Find the venue that you like the choice of music they play, and then you will be well on your way to have fun on the dance floor.
I teach the East Coast Swing and the West Coast Swing here at Two Left Feet Dance Lessons.
