This is a great, short clip of Thomas F. DeFrantz breaking down three of the most important dance forms of the 1800’s – the Buck, Wing, and Jig.  All of which make up the roots of blues dancing and most social dancing as we know it today.

Plus, his fluid movement is just beautiful to watch.  Enjoy!
