Description

West coast swing is the chill, mellow cousin of Lindy Hop. Originating in the west coast of the US, West Coast Swing is typically danced to blues, country, jazz and slower contemporary pop songs. The dance is defined by a strong tension and compression that gives the dance its so called „gooey“ feel and allows both leader and follower to improvise without breaking connection. This two hour workshop will introduce you to the basics of West Coast Swing, no prior experience required. This workshop will be taught in English, however questions in German can be answered.
