Swing dance was perfected by the American Black community during the 1920s when contemporary jazz music was in its prime. The Lindy Hop, Charleston, and Collegiate Shag are all variations of swing dance.

The style died down a bit in the 1940s but re-emerged with new energy in the 1990s. Now you can find swing dance competitions all over the world.

And one of those places is Phoenix Arizona, which hosts an annual Phoenix Swing Championships each year. The 2010 champs were prolific dancers, Jordan Frisbee and Jessica Cox.

Heating up the stage

Jordan Frisbee was into sports as a youngster but started dancing at age 11. According to his website, “All it took was a pretty girl asking him if knew how to West Coast Swing, and Jordan was taking lessons.”

His second dance partner with Jessica Cox and the two danced together for three years, during which they were the youngest couple to win a NASDE event in the Showcase Division. Frisbee has been dancing with a new partner for 16 years now – Tatiana Mollman and together they’ve won the US Open Championship, NASDE Champions (6 times!), and the Multi-Grand National Championship. They’ve also been the recipients of the Star Award for the Couple with the Most Impact on Swing.

But before that, Frisbee’s steamy dance with Cox made quite an impression when the duo competed in the 2010 championships for Phoenix Swing, in which they won first place. And once the video of their performance was uploaded to social media, it quickly garnered more than five million views.

Cox has been dancing since age 5 and entered her first US Open at age 6. According to her website, “She’s been a three-time Junior US Open Champion, two-time US Open Showcase Champion, 4-time USA Grand Nationals Showcase Champion, and winner of Phoenix Champion of Champions Jack and Jill as well taking titles in Cabaret, Team, and Strictly Swing.”

Later, she partnered with the legendary John Lindo, helping him produce teaching DVDs and working to bring swing dance to the rest of the world.

Sexy from the start

In this particular performance, they hold nothing back, giving each other a hug and a kiss before they begin – something the surprises other contestants.

To keep things interesting, they start out dancing to “She Wolf” by Shakira – and let’s just say their moves were hot.

If you think swing dance is old and stuffy, then you haven’t seen the modern styles. This was not what we expected!

The dips, turns, slides, pivots, and turns are executed flawlessly and their chemistry is undeniable.

The couple took advantage of the entire dance floor and showed off more than a few flashy moves in addition to required maneuvers.

Their second song is Etta James’ “I Sing the Blues” – and if you know the song, you know that’s certainly NOT going to turn down the heat.

They certainly took the sex appeal up a notch in their performance, which is apparently just what the judges wanted to see.

At the end, Jordon grabbed ahold of the ties on the back of Jessica’s top. As he slowly began to pull them, the crowd cheered. But we were relieved it stopped there – they showed us all we needed to see!
