About the West Coast Swing Group

Focus: This group of talented instructors just likes to have fun! They do one thing, and they do it with style. West Coast Swing is a slow swing, usually danced to contemporary, blues or country/western music. There's lots of room to play and interpret with this dance, and it works well for couples who are at different levels in their dancing.

This group offers three levels of instruction on Thursdays: beginner, beyond beginner and intermediate/advanced. Instructors are Donn and Karen Knokey, Derrik and Maria Coghill, Dave Kahn and Chelsea Johnston.
