East Coast SilhouetteEast Coast Swing – East Coast Swing is the base for all Swing dances.  East Coast Swing evolved in the Southern area of the United States when the residents were introduced to Lindy Hop. The easy and smooth movements of the East Coast Swing propelled it to be the version that would become the predominate style of the Swing dance. It is often referred to as Triple Step Swing and is characterized by two triple steps and the rocking away from the partner. East Coast Swing is a circular dance that is danced with a bounce but is very grounded and not high in the legs. The bounce requires the dancer to remain grounded and not jump around too much.
