I wanted to learn learn swing dancing for free. I’m a complete beginners. Here are four (4) YouTube lessons on swing dance that I’m using.
Swing Dance can be used as a tool for personal and social transformation. Swing dancing has many health and social benefits. The transformative power of dancing makes us stay young, happy, healthy, fit and strong, have better relationships and socialize with our communities.
These free lessons teaches the basics and are targeted for beginners. I think taking dancing classes will further improve one’s dancing skills. Learning swing dance as a group is fun and entertaining.
I think I should purchase my own swing dancing DVDs that professionally teaches the dance moves and steps in detail.

Dancing dancing is a performance art. We gain more confidence and become better when we practice and perform more, and use our creativity to improvise on the basics and fundamentals we learn.
I have some idea about about Lindy Hop after watching the free YouTube lessons. Lindy Hop is the most popular swing dance with many derivatives. The swing out is the basic pattern. It has both 8-count and 6-count rhythms. Lindy Hop is fun because once we learn the basic moves and steps, we can add more moves and improvisations.
It is essential that we learn the fundamentals of the dance. Learning the styles and techniques is easy once we have a good foundation.
