West Coast Swing / Shag

West Coast Swing is a partner dance with roots in Lindy Hop. It is characterized by a distinctive elastic look that results from its basic extension-compression technique of partner connection, and is danced primarily in a slotted area on the dance floor. The dance allows for both partners to improvise steps and is danced to a wide range of music from Rythme/blues to Pop. Women usually wear slacks or skirts, and men dress smart casual
