Victoria Dance Scene
Posted on May 15, 2009.
The Swing Dance Association of Victoria is a non-profit society dedicated to promoting Swing Dancing throughout Victoria, British Columbia. When we think of Swing Dancing, our first thoughts lean towards a social activity known as Lindy Hop. Lindy Hop emphasizes connection, communication, musicality, and play. Take a look:
Swing, however, is a family of dances, which includes:
- Lindy Hop
- East Coast Swing (sometimes called Jive, Jitterbug, or Rock'n'Roll)
- West Coast Swing
- ... and more!
We strongly encourage you to try them all!
