One of the greatest features of west coast swing is the variety of music that fits the dance. This list is designed for beginning dancers, so that you can get a taste of the different musical styles available within WCS. These songs are also chosen to be danceable by beginners: they are neither too slow nor incredibly fast and have a relatively clear beat. While you will be able to dance to a wider variety of music with practice, these songs should give you an idea of how diverse WCS music can be!
