Two-thirds rhythm and one-third soul — that's how Fats Waller defined the uniquely American form of popular music and dance known as 'swing.' Requiring only joyful enthusiasm and a ready partner, swing exploded out of pre-war Harlem's hotbed of youth culture and swept the world. It shattered ethnic and cultural barriers, generating specialty styles such as jive, swing, the Lindy Hop, West Coast swing, and hip-hop swing. This musical review celebrates this remarkable diversity to the beat of the most exhilarating songs of the period. An enthralling song-and-dance show that reminds us Swing! isn't a time or place, but a state of mind.
