West Coast Swing
If you are into dancing, sooner or later you will take a West Coast Swing lesson or 2 or 2,000.
Basic step fits in 6 beats: walk walk chachacha chachacha (read: step step
triplestep triplestep). Easier than the Lindy Hop because 2 triplesteps in a
row put you back on the same "rock foot". Very evolved, has huge following. A "pimpier frufru" strut-your-butt style of dancing that inhabits a "slot" on the
dance floor. Slightly socially
challenged? (most dancers are!) If you learn WCS
you will have lots of friends. People that dance West Coast Swing also dance The Hustle and NightClub 2-Step
You can dance the Lindy Hop and East Coast Swing and Foxtrot to WCS music. Most WCS music works great to Polka dance steps too! Shhhh, don't tell anyone, they will think you are crazy.
