What Is West Coast Swing?

Catriona Wiles & Paul Warden

West Coast Swing is a fun, fluid, expressive dance recognisable by its slotted shape and focus on connection between partners. It is best danced smooth and grounded but allows full freedom of creativity and musical interpretation. It can be danced to a varied range of music from Blues to Country Swing, from Soul to Pop, making it probably the most versatile of couples dance forms. Leverage and compression is the key, allowing for dips, drops and turbo spins, just like Modern Jive. But its sensuality and intimacy is more akin to Blues.

West Coast Swing is the perfect progression not only for the more experienced dancer wishing to take their Jive to a new level, but also for the novice dancer interested in learning some sexy, sassy moves along with vital technique which can be applied to a range of couples dances.
