West Coast Swing

This dance consists of six and eight count patterns, which are done in a slot.  The woman no longer rocks back as in East Coast swing but instead she always walks forward on count one.  This dance is usually done to medium tempo swing and blues music frequently those songs slower than East Coast swing.  However, those that achieve a high skill level in this dance can and do dance it to fast tempo music.  This dance has no bounce and has a very smooth fill to it.  Rarely will you ever see high kicks or moves which require the dancer to leave the floor.
