Couple earns a standing ovation from the crowd for their incredible swing dancing

Two swing dancers wowed the crowd as they moved to the beat of a Wild Cherry song at the USA Grand National Dance Championship.

Not a lot of people take swing dancing seriously, but this dancing couple begs to differ. Bryn Anderson and Ken Rutland brought their all during the competition held in 2017.

With their exceptional routine, it was no surprise that other competitors felt left behind by the pair.

Joining the West Coast swing category in the Rising Star division, Anderson and Rutland showed off their competitive sides.

Anderson is no stranger to dancing. She has been into it and took West Coast swing lessons when she was only five years old.

She has a unique style when it comes to West Coast swinging. She likes to incorporate other forms of dancing like ballet, jazz, contemporary, and even Latin.
