They inevitably won the first place!
What actually transpires when a swinging hot lady from another era and a modern country boy cross paths?
At the county fairs, there is an eruption of rockin’ good energy when the two dance forms combine!
What exactly is country swing? Unbelievable as it may seem, one genesis story places the dance form’s inception at the height of John Travolta’s film Urban Cowboy. Country Dance Online reports:
“After the success of the film Urban Cowboy, hustle dancers accompanied John Travolta of the disco dance floor and into the country bar, which is where the genre of country swing most likely had its start.
While the origins of western swing music can be traced to the 1930s or 1940s, modern country swing dance tends to resemble the hustling of the 1970s.
Although the high-energy routines occupy relatively little space on the dance floor, the acrobatic performance is what makes swing dancing so entertaining to witness!
