West Coast Swing Portland Online

West Coast Swing is a couple dance from the family of swing dances. As the name implies, the dance originated on the West Coast of the United States. It is the official dance of the State of California. Unlike other swing dances like the Lindy Hop, the West Coast Swing oriented less to the original steps and dances. So West Coast Swing is often danced to disco, modern pop music and hip hop music (but of course to swing music).

Keeping rhythm and concepts similar connection to the Lindy Hop, this dance has evolved with contemporary musical trends. This style is characterized by slower tempos and the disappearance of the “bounce” used in most other swing dances. We recognize West Coast Swing to its flexible and elastic movements and his movements in defined corridors, unlike the Lindy Hop where dancers wander on the dance floor as linearly as circularly.

West Coast Swing has retained its improvisational aspect of his nature, but has developed its own connection code between partners. Notably by transforming the rock-step in a step anchor. West Coast Swing has apparently evolved from the smooth style in California, including danced by Dean Collins.
