Besides East Coast Swing, what other related dances do you know or want to learn? E.g. Lindy Hop, Balboa, Charleston, etc.?

Have done some Balboa, Night Club Two Step, Hustle, and some Latin dances such as Cha Cha and Mambo. I would love to learn the Charleston, though not sure who I'd do it with. LOL

How would you describe your dancing ability? Novice, intermediate, or experienced?

I would describe myself as intermediate, but some say I'm experienced, though not my opinion.

Have you done much swing dancing before? If so, for how long?

Did East Coast Swing, growing up in New York. Learned in grade school with a bunch of girls, and I was always the leader. Imagine the difficulty I had as a young teen, trying to follow the guys. I still wanted to lead. Ha, ha. Been doing West Coast for 25 years.

Would you be interested in leading a Meet Up swing dancing event?

No answer yet


Came to the Valley in 1982, from New York, via Connecticut. Discovered West Coast Swing when a friend brought me to the Greater Phoenix Swing Dance Club in August of 1986, and I was hooked. Later learned, it was the most difficult to learn.

What Victoria E. K. is saying about this Meetup Group

I was so disappointed that no one else showed up for the Blues Review Band at the Cave Creek Tap Haus on Saturday, 12/01. It was just myself, my sister, and another friend, who's a very new West Coast Swing Dancer. I was itching to dance, but alas, I could not. This is a great band and deserves a great audience and lots of dancers. Let's go to see them soon. BTW, I noticed that this site says "one" attended, but it was 3, as I replied "yes" for myself and 2 guests. Thanks.
