Links to dance videos and Aussie WCS sites

Links to Aussie and Kiwi West Coast Swing schools are at the bottom of this page.  In the meantime, here are a couple of links to professional dancers doing choreographed moves for routines, and some “off the cuff” dancing - i.e completely un-choreographed.

Jordan and Tatiana - this pairing create some unbelievable choreography.  Great to watch.

Kyle and Sarah - this video is a few years old now but a great showcase for WCS.  2009 Summer Hummer Jack and Jill finals - slow and sexy dance.

Kyle and Sarah - we love this choreographed routine - it is fast and furious

Ben and Jessica improvised dancing.  Ben is back in Australia in May 2016.  Jessica wass here in March 2016.

The Big Mahn - John Lindo - John Lindo with Stephanie Batista

John and Jessica Cox were last here in Australia in March 2016. See them dance here.

Here is a link to an Audacity Dance performance at Stomp 2013.  We taught this  dance routine over two Saturdays.  It was a fun event.

Here are two of Australia’s best - Allan and Holly Skinner performing at Best of the Best in Sydney.
