About West Coast Swing

The official state dance of California, the West Coast Swing originated from the Savoy Style Lindy dance. Brought to Hollywood by Dean Collins, a famous movie dancer and choreographer, this dance soon became popular in California nightclubs during the 1930s and 1940s.

The West Coast Swing is known for its “dancing in a slot” appearance where the man dances in place while the woman travels back and forth.
