West Coast Swing
West Coast Swing is a form of swing dancing that is danced to moderate tempo Blues, R&B and Contemporary Music. It is the smoother, sexier version of the swing dance family. Its basic patterns are both 6 and 8 beats. It is highly musical and can adopt many nuances from other forms of dance. This makes West Coast Swing a highly versatile dance form.
Hustle is an American dance which originated in the 1970s. It is danced to club hits of the 1970s as well as today's music. The dance is highly dynamic, flashy, and powerful. Its movement is a 3 count basic with some extended patterns and syncopations.
Salsa (and Mambo) has its origins in the 1920s in Latin-American countries and heavily influenced by African rhythms. It's poly-rhythmic form makes it exciting to listen and dance to. Its basic form is a repeating 4 count basic (forward/backward or side/side). This dance can be both elegant as well as sensual.
