Rule #13: Tempos are your friend

People think that balboa is only done to 260bpm+, WRONG! People think that you can only shag to OH! Lady Be Good, WRONG! People think you can only Lindy Hop to Lindy Hoppers Delight, WRONG!

Within the realm of swing dancing, every dance (Lindy Hop, balboa, Shag) can all be done successfully and enjoyed completely at all tempo ranges.  Just because you have dancers who have a penchant for balboa dancing, doesn’t mean that you cannot play a song at 150 or 100 even. The same goes for Lindy Hop and Collegiate Shag.
