Video: Three dances to welcome the New Year

Electro swing is a contemporary music genre that combines the influence of vintage swing, jazz, hip hop and house music. French jazz genius Django Reinhardt is frequently mentioned as an important influence, as is the Austrian composer and filmmaker Parov Stelar. The genre began in Europe in the 1990s and later spread to the United States. The driving beat and relentless energy of electro swing make it popular on dance-floors, as well as being widely adopted by professional dancers and choreographers. Below are three of my favorite electro swing performances.
