The term "Swing Dance" generally describes a group of dancing that came about as a result of the music influence, mostly in America around the 1920's. This term is also often extended to include other styles of swing dances: West Coast Swing, Carolina Shag, East Coast Swing, Hand Dancing, Jive, Rock and Roll, Modern Jive, and Hustle and other dances developed during the 1940s and later. A strong tradition of social and competitive boogie woogie and Rock 'n' Roll in Europe add these dances to their local swing dance cultures.
