African American dancing in general and Swing dancing in particular has always had a vibrant solo dance culture alongside partnered dancing like Lindy Hop.
Classic Jazz and Charleston steps form a crucial vocabulary for any jazz dance and are a beautiful expression of the music on its own. Dancing solo to Jazz music is joy and imagination in motion and fosters improvisation, musicality, rhythm, coordination, balance and expression - and will definitely help you grow as a dancer.
