Rhythm is it! As a passionate Lindy Hop and Balboa dancer I would claim to know which music inspires dancers most. To me it doesn’t matter if the music is from 1922 or 2012. As long as it really swings, anything goes. Clearly, 30ies and 40ies big bands have the highest energy. Apart from them, there are countless bands today that keep swing music alive and play music that is wonderful to dance to. My secret recipe as a DJ – if I have any – is probably this: finding the right mix between old and new.
