Swing Dance is an umbrella term for a variety of dances (Lindy Hop, Charleston, Balboa, etc.) that exploded in popularity during the Harlem Renaissance. African Americans developed these dances concurrently with the growth of the swing music, a style of jazz music that was primarily influenced and composed by talented African American musicians. This truly American art form took the world by storm starting in the early 20th century. These dances and the music that it celebrates continue to evolve, bringing together people of many different backgrounds. This truly American art form is still thriving today all around the world. Jazz Attack is proud to preserve culture and history, while promoting imagination, creativity, and an inclusive community! Jazz Attack strives to welcome and include new and all people to create a community proud of diversity and inclusive of all ages, races, genders, ethnicities, sexualities, abilities, experiences, backgrounds, and lifestyles.
