Swing

The Lindy picked up where the Charleston left off. It had "swing-outs", "break-aways" and "shine-steps". With the birth of "Swing" music in the mid 1930's the Lindy climbed the social ladder. In August of 1935, at the Polomar Ballroom, bandleader Benny Goodman played a Fletcher Henderson arrangement of "Stompin' at the Savoy". The rest, as they say, is history. The dance craze swept the nation depending on where you lived, it was the Jitterbug, the Lindy, or the Swing.
