Hand Dance

Taught by Tina Wilkinson & Wayne Jackson

Baltimore style partner dance. Hand Dance is an improvisational form of swing style partner dancing developed in the Washington, DC area in the early 1950s by African Americans. The dance evolved from the early Lindy Hop and Jitterbug dance styles of the 1930s and 1940s.  Hand Dance is rooted in the floor version of swing unlike Lindy and Jitterbug.  Individual style and interpretation is key in important to the dance as well as the gliding footwork and continuous hand connection between the partners, hence its name.
