The Jitterbug is a term used to describe various types of swingdancing.
This term was famously associated with swing era dancers by band leader Cab Calloway because, as he put it, "They look like a bunch of jitterbugs out there on the floor" due to their fast often bouncy movements.
Jitterbug was also done to Western Swing in the 1940s.
