Boogie woogie has a 50’s vibe and an attitude of rock’n’roll music.
Boogie woogie is an energetic and cheerful dance in which the interpretation of music plays a big role. The genre is improvised partner dance, i.e. based on leading and following. Boogie woogie is danced to both fast rock’n’roll and slower blues. The moods of fast and slow boogie woogie are very different, so there is a suitable variation within the dance genre.
As the youth’s favorite music shifted from the swing to the more vicious rhythm’n’blues and rock’n’roll in the 1950s, lindy hop, then popular, became a more energetic dance.
