    This couple has some pretty creative movement. Seems like they have imported some Argentine Tango elements into their Swing.

    This is Blues dance, as it is done nowadays. Many (maybe most) Blues dancers originally come from the swing community; I can tell, either from watching or dancing, instantly, if a Blues dancer started with Swing. Lots of Blues dancers also do salsa or AT, and lots of that movement gets incorporated into modern Blues.

    At Swing weekends, there's often a Blues demo, even if there are no classes in Blues dance. These two dancers teach and perform, primarily in Europe. This video is their demo at an event in France, last year -- a Swing weekend that's been going for something like 20 years.

    Swango's different from Blues.

    Yes, I see what you mean about that. There is a studio in my area where you see a lot of crossover between swing, salsa, and Tango. Many of the people who go to tang onight also go to swinh night and the Blues has a room upstairs where they do that as well.
