Boogie-Woogie is an energetic swing dance that is popular in Europe. It is primarily based around a six-beat rhythm, and is danced to fairly fast music (of all kinds, not just boogie-woogie piano music).
The dance differs from the six-beat parts of Lindy Hop because Boogie-Woogie does not include rock steps as frequently as Lindy Hop—the dancers more usually perform two steps in place instead. Stylistically, the dancers' posture is more upright than for Lindy Hop, and Boogie-Woogie dancers often use tricky footwork variations, even when dancing to very fast music.
