About the Shim Sham:
Originally a tap dance developed in the 1920s and 1930s for stage performance, the Shim Sham (sometimes called the "Shim Sham Shimmy") is danced today throughout the world at swing dances. It is the most widely known swing line dance (other swing line dances include the Jitterbug Stroll, Tranky Doo, and The Big Apple). Though it can be danced to any song with a 32-bar chorus, today the Shim Sham is most popularly danced to Jimmie Lunceford's "T'Ain't What You Do, It's The Way That You Do It".
