Did You Know...
The term "jitterbug" originally was a slang term for a person who was real heavy
on "jittersauce" (which is slang for alcohol). The term was then later applied to
Lindy Hop dancers and Lindy Hop itself. By the 1950s, the term was being used to
describe East Coast Swing -- which had replaced the Lindy Hop as the "in" dance.
