Hand Dancing: An African-American Cultural Experience
Hand Dancing, also referred to as D.C. Swing, is a form of dance that was created by D.C. dancers in the 1950's. It is recognizable by its continuous hand connection as well as smooth fluid footwork. In 1999 it was formally recognized as the city's official dance.
