West Coast Swing is extremely popular in the USA & UK and now growing across Australia. West Coast Swing is characterised as a linear dance, emphasising connection between the partners as well as improvisation and personal interpretation of the music, giving it an elastic, smooth and sexy look and feel.
This style can be danced slow and sexy, smooth and sophisticated, or fast and rhythmically to most types of music, including Top40, R'n'B, classic Swing, Jazz, Funk, Blues, Pop, Country & Western and Hip Hop.
The class commences at 7.30pm followed by social dancing at 8.25pm.
No partner is required as all classes are rotational.
Wear shoes with leather, suede or plastic soles and comfortable casual clothing.
After class the participants are welcome to stay for part or all of the social dancing if they choose.
