West Coast Swing (WCS) is the official state dance of California and is one of the most popular partner dances in Sonoma County as well as throughout the US and internationally.
WCS was born in California in the 1940’s and is a smooth swing dance that is usually danced to slower music than Jitterbug or East Coast Swing. It is a fun and versatile dance that can be danced to a wide range of music including Rhythm & Blues, Country Western, Disco, Rock and contemporary Pop tunes.
Because of the upcoming Holiday Season, we are limited to 2 classes in which the most basic steps of WCS will be taught. If there is interest in more classes, they can be scheduled for the future.
As before, no partners or experience are required. We will rotate partners during the classes.
Join us for a fun way to get exercise. Some studies also indicate that partner dancing may actually increase mental acuity and reduce the possibility of cognitive decline. It is definitely good for our muscles, balance, brains and spirit!
