What we're about

We follow all current COVID health guidelines, which are subject to change.

===========================================================

This group is for people - single or couples - who want to learn and dance West Coast Swing.

West Coast Swing is a modern form of swing dancing that evolved from the jitterbug of the 30's and 40's. It's a little slower, smoother and sexy. We are a very social group that mixes up partners, so you don't need a partner to come to one of our events.

We've currently got monthly dances in Ventura, as well as weekly group classes.

We dance to blues and blues-drived music - everything from Keb Mo and Motown to Billie Eilish. We also like to mix in some hustle, country two-step, and night club two-step into our mix. Come join us, and be sure to introduce yourself!
