Princess...I don't have an answer, but was just wondering...is this considered a 'flash act' or a swing dance with gymnastic moves?

Shutoo-- A Flash Act is not jitterbugs. The best example I can give you without giving one away would be this:

The Nicholas Brothers are tap dancers who also do a Flash Act. A real Flash Act doesn't tap dance.  So  just imagine an act like The Nicholas Brothers  without Taps on their shoes and no tap dancing.  I hope I didn't really confuse you more.

The most famous Flash Act was The Berry Brothers and they worked at the most famous Studio, MGM.
