West Coast Swing History - A Brief Background on West Coast Swing


West Coast Swing grew out of the Lindy Hop. It's a slotted dance that consists mainly of 6 and 8 count patterns. Originally called Western Swing, it was later named West Coast Swing to differentiate it from Country Western swing dancing. Today this dance is popular in many different dancing communities: the Swing dance community, the Country Western dance community and the Ballroom community, just to name a few. Each group molds the moves to be consistent with the principles of its dancing. For example, ballroom dancers might use a more upright style whereas Swing dancers might dance more into the floor, and Country Western dancers might emphasize more ducks, tunnels & turns. West Coast Swing often incorporates moves from other current popular dances.
