Dances like the Lindy Hop are highly energetic and demand the dancers to move quickly. Partners spin each other around and dance in time to eight-count beats.

Many other popular dances were invented during this time, like the Collegiate Shag, Balboa, and the Charleston. Swing dancing forms the basis for many different styles, such as disco, line dancing, and hip-hop.
