Featured in "The Annex"
West Coast Swing is a modern form of swing that is danced to contemporary pop, blues and R&B. The playful moves and elegant lines make for an exciting dance, but the smooth and relaxed style make it easy to dance the night away! This is the perfect dance to learn for a night out on the town because it is danced to the music you hear all the time on the radio and in clubs.
Co-hosted by Paolo Piselli, with DJ's Missy Harvey and Kim Filippo, and occasional guest DJ's and instructors.

It consists of two or more people dancing as partners in sync to a six or eight count beat to musical sounds of Jazz, R&B, Funk, Neo Soul and some Hip-Hop.
