What is Jersey Shore Swing?
Jersey Shore Swing is a community of Lindy Hoppers that are committed to the pursuit of preserving and advancing the often overlooked thrill of partner dancing to the rhythms of jazz and blues. Lindy Hop, nurtured in the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem from the Charleston of the 20's, provides a unique vehicle for people to connect to one another through the music. Lindy Hop is a dance that feels as dynamic as it looks. It is the in-the-moment connection with the music and your partner that keeps Lindy Hoppers the world over coming back for more.
Jersey Shore Swing is a growing group of regular people who have discovered that listening to the great Jazz and Blues at the Shore can be even better when you're swinging out.
