Of the many different types of swing dancing, East Coast Swing is the most commonly danced and one of the easiest to learn. It is danced both socially and competitively in both ballroom dancing and in country dancing.
Otherwise known as "Triple Swing", East Coast Swing is a happy, fun, upbeat dance. Distinguished by its bounce, rock step, swing hip motion and triple steps, East Coast Swing is a "spot dance."
The Basic East Coast Swing step will generally stay in one area of the floor and doesn't travel progressively counter clockwise like Two Step, Waltz or Polka. This is generally how swing dance works.
The ECS frame is typically in Closed Promenade position with the leader’s left hand at the waist level and the right hand is on the follower’s left shoulder blade.
