Introducing Chickta-Boom: Swing 101 Website
We here at Swungover* are proud to present Chickta-Boom, a new companion website specifically designed for newcomers to the modern swing dance scene.
The website offers (or will offer in the near future)…
— A home for all of the beginner-related articles of Swungover* with easy-to-read contents
— A YouTube dance lesson series on Jazz movement for people to learn solo jazz dance on their own.
— Interviews with noteworthy people in the scene giving advice to beginner dancers and telling their own beginner stories.

“Chickta-boom” is one of the most straight, solid swing rhythms. “Chickta-boom-chickta-boom-chickta-boom-chickta-boom…” Since swing rhythm’s the foundation that everything else is built upon in swing music, it seemed a fitting name for a project dedicated towards laying a steady, solid foundation for new vintage-style swing dancers.
