Originally born from the Lindy Hop tradition, West Coast Swing (WCS) is a constantly evolving partner dance that is heavily seasoned with elements of traditional swing, salsa, tango, hip- hop, jazz, ballroom and other dances. Given its influences and global popularity, West Coast Swing is now danced to a wide range of musical genres, including Top 40, Blues, Soul, Funk, Jazz and Country. West Coast Swing is a fun, dynamic, and versatile dance, which allows both leaders and followers to improvise and groove as she or he interprets the music.
