West Coast Swing with Jes Ann Nail
West Coast Swing
is a unique style of swing dancing that has made a significant resurgence within the past few years. It’s a fun, improvisational style of dancing that even allows the lady or follower to “lead” on occasion. It is traditionally danced to slower, blues-style swing music, but many are dancing West Coast Swing to hip hop, R&B and pop music.
This is a friendly environment, and the dance can be very forgiving, making it a perfect dance for absolute beginners!
