Swing dancers are often referred to as jitterbugs because they dance without any control like an alcoholic who suffers from the ‘jitters’. It can also mean a type of Swing dance or the act of Swing dancing. In 1934, Cab Calloway recorded Call of the Jitter Bug and the film Cab Calloway’s Jitterbug Party which popularised the word.
