    by Alise Borne on September 5, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    Born in California during the 1940s, the West Coast Swing evolved from Lindy Hop. It is known for being danced “in a slot”, meaning that it does not take up a lot of room on the dance floor. It is a smooth dance with no bounce, allowing for various syncopations and improvisations. One of the most fun aspects of West Coast Swing is that it can be danced to almost any style of music - rhythm and blues, country, pop, and even rock. Ready to learn how to dance West Coast Swing?    Timing The West Coast Swing is danced in a 4/4 timing, counted as 1,2, 3a4, 5a6. Another optional timing includes dancing the West Coast Swing as quick, quick, (1, 2), quick a quick, quick a quick (3a4, 5a6).   Breakdown of Basic Step As a follower: Start with your weight on your left foot and your right foot free. Perform two walks forward on counts (right foot then left foot). Hooking your right foot slightly behind the left foot, perform a triple step. Right foot crosses slightly behind left as you step onto the ball of the foot, replace your weight forward to the left foot, then take a full step back with the right foot.  Perform another triple step in place this time, stepping left, right, left, almost like a march on the spot. As a leader: Start with your weight on your right foot and your left foot free. Take two steps back on counts 1, 2 (left foot, then right foot).
