History of West Coast Swing Dancing

The West Coast Swing has some mixed roots, growing out of a variety of different dances. It is most commonly linked to a branch of the Lindy Hop, a popular dance started in the 1940s. During this time period, several different swing styles began spreading all across the country. Dean Collins, a prominent swing dancer from the East Coast, is often associated with bringing this new style to the Hollywood region. It grew in popularity so much, that by 1988, California had made the West Coast Swing the official state dance! The West Coast Swing is primarily a partner dance. It uses long, stretched out movements to create a fun, elastic appearance. There is a lot of movement on the dance floor, but usually contained to a squared off area. Partners maintain their dance moves in this area, often switching roles and positions. Changes to the West Coast Swing are not uncommon. It is a dance that keeps evolving with time. Different counts and modifications are made depending on certain regions and styles of music.
