Swing Waltz

The Swing Waltz is done to 3/4 time and became popular around 1937. It is a waltz, despite the name of swing (referring to Jitterbug, etc.).

The dance was basically a swinging motion and was done to Big Band music rather than a Classical type of Music, basically a Waltz for Swing dancers. There is a certain type of swing music that is done in 3/4 time, but it had nothing to do with the original "Swing Waltz."

The Swing Waltz is also a favorite of the Ice Skating Community.
