East Coast Swing's dance roots are based on Lindy Hop, until the dance was formalized into a ballroom dance taking the shape we now know. West Coast Swing (aka WCS) is California's state dance and unlike East Coast Swing, WCS is danced in a linear manner. Both are fun, upbeat, dances. Basic group classes are designed for the beginner dancer. Our professionally NM State certified instructors will teach you the steps and will also talk about how to be a good lead and a good follower. This free class is available only to students that are new to our studio.
