Cartoons Swingin’

In the 1940s swing dancing was extremely popular and it seems even pop culture, such as cartoons, took it up!  It’s always fun of course, to try and learn new swing moves by watching some of the pros, but it’s been a real surprise and delight to see my favorite dance protrayed in cartoons.

This Donald Duck clip features lots of inspirational solo moves which you can pick up… or just watch for the fun of it.  Quite entertaining!

In this one, a more “serious” version – but still funny – you see young people dancing to balboa and doing swing outs as well as ariels.  Quite entertaining!  And I prefer that kind of music to the previous one!

Enjoy and let the creative juices flow!
