Some songs make you tap your feet and jiggle your hips, but these two dancers might just make you jump out of your seat and start doing swing moves with them! They’re that fun to watch.
A video of longtime dance partners Jason Colacino and Katie Boyle resurfaced recently, and their “countrified” version of the Rolling Stones hit “Honky Tonk Woman” is so catchy. Their chemistry and command of the beat is absolute perfection!
Both dancers have a fluidity in their movements that make their complicated routine look easy, however, it’s anything but! They’re performing a form of dance called “West Coast Swing,” which has roots in the old-fashioned “Lindy Hop” dance.
West Coast Swing is characterized by the elastic way the dancers’ limbs move. Being connected to your partner is a big part of nailing this dance, and Jason and Katie definitely seem to be moving as one fluid entity.
