West Coast Swing

West Coast Swing is a partner dance with roots in the Lindy Hop.

It is 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

Check out these videos of the pros...

This dance captured our eyes 10 years ago! We love it!

It is a modern swing dance that can be danced to so many different music genres and is another reason why you can't get us off the dance floor. One minute you're dancing to modern music, then blues, then swing...the list goes on and on.

Another aspect of West Coast Swing that you will enjoy is that it is a social partner dance. You don't need to bring a partner as we rotate in the class and this gives you the chance to meet new friends and join the dance community. You'll be hooked!

Not only is this a social and fun dance but it is also great exercise and will keep you fit!...more enjoyable than the gym.

If it is your first time and you are wondering what to wear, just come in whatever makes you comfortable.

Our classes are aimed to get you moving and grooving straight away so be mindful you will need to have footwear that is light and flexible. Ladies we would recommend a low heel.
