Rock the Billy consists of 4 different dance styles:
What is Rock The Billy?
The boogie evolved from the swing at the end of the 1920s with the attempt to make the swing dance socially acceptable. However, a straighter posture could not detract the sense of freedom that comes along when quick feet come into play, suitable to the driving pianosound.
Being another advancement from the original swing, Rock'n’Roll has become the sportiest member of the swing family over time. Strong, snappy movements, plus in one way or another acrobatics, and you will amaze everybody. Playing the right music to it from Elvis Presley, Bill Haley and Co., no one will stay sitting!
What used to be popular in the 1920s, because it was too "dirty" and "undisciplined," is experiencing a unique revival all over the world. The swing returns and is unstoppable! Who can resist the expression of pure joie de vivre that can be recognized in every face once you are infected with the "virus"?
Jazzabilly is a version of the well-known solo jazz dance developed by Billy himself. By combining a variety of Charleston moves with attractively modern music, jazzabilly is simply the pure joy of movement!
