Miscellanea

  1. Swing: "Swing dance" is most commonly known as a group of dances that developed with the swing style of jazz music in the 1920s-1950s, although the earliest of these dances predate "swing era" music. The best known of these dances is the Lindy Hop, a popular partner dance that originated in Harlem in 1927 and is still danced today. Lindy was a fusion of many dances that preceded it or were popular during its development but is mainly based on jazz, tap, breakaway and Charleston. While the majority of swing dances began in African American communities as vernacular African American dances, some swing era dances, such as the Foxtrot and the Balboa, developed in white communities. Swing dance was not always used as a general blanket term for a group of dances. Historically, the term Swing applied with no connection to the Swing era, or its Swing music. The Texas Tommy Swing dance first appeared in print in 1910 in San Francisco. Into the 1920s and 1930s every major city had their own way to dance, based on regional roots, and influences.

  3. Swing: In jazz and related musical styles, the term swing is used to describe the sense of propulsive rhythmic "feel" or "groove" created by the musical interaction between the performers, especially when the music creates a "visceral response" such as feet-tapping or head-nodding. The term "swing" is also used to refer to several other related jazz concepts including the swung note and the genre of swing, a jazz style which originated in the 1930s.

  4. Swing a.k.a. The Lindy Hop is an American dance that evolved in Harlem, New York City, in the 1920s and 1930s and originally evolved with the jazz music of that time. It was very popular during the Swing era of the late 1930s and early 1940s.

  5. Swing: An electoral swing analysis shows the extent of change in voter support, typically from one election to another, expressed as a positive or negative percentage.

  7. Swing: The term swing is organically employed in UK. It shows the extent of change in voter support typically from one election to another, expressed as a positive or negative percentage. In Australia however, swing is used in a different sense. For the Australian House of Representatives and the lower houses of the parliaments of all the Australian states and territories except Tasmania and the ACT, Australia employs preferential voting in single-member constituencies. Under the full-preference instant-runoff voting system, in each seat, the candidate with the lowest vote is eliminated and their preferences are distributed, which is repeated until only two candidates remain. Whilst every seat has a two-candidate preferred result, seats where the major parties have come first and second are commonly referred to as having a two-party preferred result. The concept of "swing" in Australian elections is not simply a function of the difference between the votes of the two leading candidates, as it is in Britain.
