    It is east coast swing...even if the styling is a bit off. They are having fun, though!

    Based on the video's title, I would say they're dancing Rock'n'Roll, which is a European offshoot of East Coast Swing. That's why the styling looks off. (Not to be confused with Acrobatic Rock'n'Roll dance, which is what the World Rock'n'Roll Council does and which looks more like gymnastics than swing dancing, at least at high-level competitions.)

    Was about to say that I saw a few drunken sailor stumbles in there from the Jive. Either way, it looks like they're having a blast!

    They are Argentinians... and probably just having fun crossing over styles in the middle of their Tango show, which is why the styling is a bit off. I look a little "off" too when I cross over and dance AT.

    Teacher told me the other day that my "drunken sailors" looked more like "wasted sailors".

    This song has been listed twice in the ballroom section as a best new song. I really really like this video what with the 50s dance show look and the way they dance so many different styles.
