    I have another dumb, rookie question: what is 'club swing'?

    Thanks for any edification.

    Club Swing = Four Count Hustle according to an Arthur Murray studio in Texas.
    Other than that, I know nothing.
    Except that I can't find either of those in Skippy Blair's books. or the Disco book I have.

    Honestly this explains a bit - I've seen people dancing "country swing" which really just looks like a hustle to me in country dance clubs.

    Sorry @Swing Learner but I've never actually heard of "club swing" before.

    Yeah, I've seen this too but it often looks alot rougher than hustle. Often looks like there is alot of yanking going on.

    In "dance", there are no dumb questions, only dumb answers .

    At my studio, they use that term to differentiate the ecs/lindy hop done in the actual swing scene vs what is done in the ballroom lexicon.
