Swing

“Swing dance” is most commonly known as a group of dances that developed with the vintage swing style of jazz music in the 1920s-1950s. The “Golden Age of Swing” in the 1930’s and 1940’s was when clubs were packed with swing dancers and big bands were the hottest ticket in town! Venues like The Savoy Ballroom in Harlem NYC were renowned across the country and the African American community was instrumental in developing both the music and the dance moves that would become mainstream across all of the USA by the time of WW2. Decades later, former professional dancers Al Minns and Frankie Manning were coaxed out of retirement to help bring back both the music and the dances they inspired. It worked. Thirty years on, there are now thriving swing dance communities worldwide.

  • “Clandestine” at Carnival 2018


    The swing community joins in with the carnival festivities in Tenerife’s capital for the competition and exhibition of vintage cars which took place on Piñata Sunday, in the García Sanabria Park on the Avenida de Anaga in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, as is the tradition.

    11:00 a 12:00 Garcia Sanabria Park.
    12:45 to 14:30 Anaga Avenue, (approximately halfway).

    Dress Code: THE DRY LAW and the CHARLESTON ERA.

    From the organization we want to thank the enthusiasm and selfless collaboration of the Club Automóviles Antiguos de Tenerife, always willing and enthusiastic with the idea of sharing space and experience with swing dancers.
