West Coast SilhouetteWest Coast Swing – West Coast Swing is an evolution of the Lindy Hop that was created when dancers who were dancing in the nightclubs of NYC moved out West to be in the movie industry. They took “their style” of Swing with them to LA and the West Coast Swing was born. West Coast Swing is a laid back form of Swing that is danced in a slot instead of being circular. The dance is referred to as sophisticated and is danced with no bounce.
