The History of West Coast Swing Part 2"
Presented by: Robert Royston

How did this dance start and where is it going? Why is it called a 'sugar push,' what is up with a 6-count basic, and does the music matter? Swing legend Robert Royston weaves a vivid history of west coast swing from the Black Bottom Charleston and the musical roots of the dance to the early days of the US Swing Dance Open, all the way through the star-studded international scene we have today. Filled with first person stories, swing lore, video clips and live demonstrations, this three hour session with the one and only Robert Royston is open to anyone curious about west coast swing.
