West Coast Swing

West Coast Swing

West Coast Swing is a flirtatious dance that
combines the mood of the blues with the
spontaneity of swing.

In the 1940’s with the wild abandonment of the
Jitterbug being banned from dance halls due to
too many injuries, Arthur Murray developed and
documented several swing steps that he later
called “Sophisticated Swing.“
