Elizabeth Iqa and Brian MacI swing dance at the Michigan Union last month.
The Union is the sight for several kinds of swing dance lessons.
Swing crecanes
its way across campus

By Cortney Dueweke
Daily Arts Writer
The liveliest craze in after-hours
recreational activity is dancing its way
across campus, from the CCRB to the
Union and beyond.
Swing dancing's appeal never dwin-
dled for experts of the dance communi-
ty, but for most people, the resurgence is
relatively recent. With the release of
movies such as "Swing Kids" and
"Swingers," plus The Gap commercials
featuring twirling khaki-clad teenagers,
swing dancing is quickly becoming a
trend of epic proportions.
Though swing dancing originated in
Harlem, Ann Arbor is far from having a
shortage of dance venues. Clubs, bars
and restaurants have well-attended
swing nights, dance studios offer swing
lessons, and there are several UMove
and UAC swing classes on campus.
Everyone's seen at least a little swing
dancing, whether in the movies or at a
club, but not everyone knows swing
specifics and what it's all about.
The three most popular swing styles
in Southeastern Michigan are East Coast
Swing, West Coast Swing, and Lindy
Hop, according to swing instructors
Louise Tamres and Susan Filipiak of
Swing City Dance Studio.
East Coast Swing is done to six counts
of music and is the easiest to learn, said
second year law student Carey
Bohjanen, a swing instructor at the
"East Coast prevails at many social
venues and ballroom dances," said
Tamres and Filipiak in an e-mail inter-
view. "More people dance East Coast
Swing in our part of the country."
Tamres and Filipia say West Coast
Swing is "a slower, more sensual style

of swing, emphasizing body rhythm." It
is more popular in the world of Country-
Western and is also suitable for slower R
& B music.
The Lindy Hop is a fast-paced eight -
count swing. Jon Favreau and Heather
Graham are lindy hopping in
"Swingers," as are the khaki kids in The
Gap commercial.
"Not as many people do Lindy Hop,"
Sandy Hubar of Swing Dance Jam, a
local weekly dance event, said. "It's what
people want to learn now."
And there are always the mixtures ...
the Jitterbug is the result of blending
East Coast Swing and Lindy Hop, and
most dancers can alternate between East
and West Coast Swing within the same
piece of music.
"Show me the flips" is the ruling sen-
timent in many swing dancing hopefuls'
minds, but veteran dancers are quick to
warn against the trademark jumps seen
on TV
"Social swing dancing does not have
flips or tricks;' stressed Tamres and
Filipiak. "If you were caught flipping
your partner at a dance club, you'd be
asked to leave."
"We see a lot of people wanting to do
jumps," said Hubar. "They think it's
what swing dancing is all about. It's dan-
gerous, and you can hurt someone else
by accident ... that is not the essence of
the dance,"
So what is it all about then?
"The music is always upbeat, and it's
especially great when you and your part-
ner are really connecting," LSA first-
year student Jeff Herman said.
"All types of people mix together: dif-
ferent ages, socio-economic back-
grounds, physical ability, races -- and
