Discussion in another thread led to mention of some scientific articles. I'm reposting a bunch of them (now with added links!) as well as additional ones I found during the search. S.E. Gentry, Dancing Cheek to Cheek: Haptic Communication Between Partner Dancers and Swing as a Finite State Machine. MIT Ph.D. Thesis (2005). S. Gentry and E.
