West Coast Swing is a funky, fun, partner dance almost identical to shag, which is popular because it can be danced in almost any venue. Having a partner is recommended but not required. West Coast Swing for Beginners is a great follow-up dance to East Coast Swing. Although this is beginner level, it is not recommended for those who have never had any kind of dance instruction. In College for Seniors dance courses, appropriate dance footwear is required. Participants must be able to stand and move up to two hours. Participants must be able to maintain a moving balance and keep up at least a moderate pace appropriate for the dance.
