West Coast Swing (WCS)
is a popular, fun and compelling partner dance. It has 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 while dancing together. It's danced to a variety of medium tempo music that can be bluesy, playful and sultry.

You've seen them in Ballet and theatrical performances. These are dramatic movements that involve great balance and technique. See my video on the Gallery page for a sample.

It has some features in common with swing dance. Modern partner hustle is sometimes referred to as New York Hustle.
