What is West Coast Swing?

West Coast Swing is a modern version of swing…except that it is typically a lot slower, danced to Pop, Blues, R&B, Rap, etc. and looks nothing like “traditional” swing.

So if you like dancing, but are a little lazy… like music, but can’t commit to one genre… and want to talk to people, but need a helpful phrase like: “would you like to dance?”... West Coast Swing might be for you! Watch out…it’s addictive.

West Coast Swing is continually influenced by new music and the style changes as new music is released. It is loved for its versatility (because you can dance to many different music genres) and improvisation (because dancers are not confined to one style and have creative freedom).

West Coast Swing is a social dance meaning it is easy to meet new people while you are circulating the room.
