West Coast Swing Program
Enjoy the classic art of swing dance with a modern twist! West Coast Swing is a cool and contemporary form of swing that can be danced to modern music with its roots in Lindy Hop. Ever evolving, this social dance has gone through many changes throughout its short history, incorporating techniques from numerous dance styles. It’s characterized by an elastic look that results from its extension-compression technique of partner connection and is danced primarily in a slotted area on the dance floor. The dance allows for both partners to improvise steps while dancing together, putting West Coast Swing in a short list of dances that emphasize improvisation. Danced to today’s top radio hits among a mix of Pop, Blues, Contemporary, Jazz, WCS is considered a sexy, sophisticated swing dance.
