My girlfriend, JesAnn Nail, and I had a chance to teach some West Coast Swing workshops in Spain over the Summer and we had a blast. However, because WCS is so new in Spain it’s taking a lot of work to get the dance going and make it accessible for more people.
As a result, a friend from Valencia / Madrid asked me for good music to learn West Coast Swing so that he could use it to teach some beginners. So I’ve put together a WCS playlist that has a bunch of slower songs. (Most under 100 BPM)
I’ve purposely included blues, contemporary, acoustic, and other popular styles of West Coast Swing music to give a variety of songs and grooves for leaning the dance. (Many of them are not from 2013)
Feel free to comment or add to this list…
