Dancers perform during the International Jitterbug Championships at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. 26,000 people were there with entrants using a special dance floor on the field. The name of the wild gyrating dance has several possible origins. Read about them here: http://www.streetswing.com/histmain/z3jtrbg.htm
