West Coast Swing originated from Lindy Hop during the 1940’s and is the State dance of California, USA. Today, WCS is identified by the smooth look that comes from its resistance/compression technique of partner connection.
It is a linear dance, where the leader primarily dances in place as the follower travels back and forth along a slotted area. WCS highlights the importance of partner connection and technique whilst allowing both partners the ability and freedom to express individual musical interpretation.
Allowing for timing variations and syncopations, slot and rhythm changes, West Coast Swing definitely becomes more addictive the better you get at it. Best of all, you don’t need to be an experienced dancer or spend heaps on tuition to be good enough to have fun.
Come to class with an open mind, relax and have fun. Our teaching style and class curriculum are designed to take the stress out of learning and our staff are friendly, approachable and always willing to help.
You can come alone, with a group of friends or a partner. Group classes are very social and a great way to meet new people, get out of the house and get fit.
Once you’ve learnt the basic WCS patterns, the sky is the limit! Not only will you have made many new friends, you will be able to dance to all kinds of music, anywhere, anytime with anyone.
Remember, the hardest part about learning how to dance is taking the first step and showing up at a class.
