My wife and I recently started East Coast Swing lessons with hopes of learning Lindy Hop down the road. I have absolutely no prior dance experience and an driving myself nuts trying to dance on the downbeat. A lot of times I can't even hear it much less dance on it. I've watched YouTube videos and read articles trying to get a definitive feeling of what the upbeat vs downbeat is. I can hear it in obvious examples,such as a slower song with a loud bass on the downbeat and a snare on the upbeat, but have trouble hearing it in most Swing music. Are there any resources or tips that you can recommend. I'm obsessing over it to the point where I fear I'll stop enjoying dance practice.
