West Coast Swing

History

The West Coast Swing is directly related to East Coast Swing and was undoubtedly born due to the style of music being played in the 1940’s, and the need for a dance that did not take up so much room. The West Coast Swing has evolved in to a “slot” dance that allows more dancers into a small area, but encourages more individuality from the participants.
