Two songs that I particularly love dancing to are Club Thing by Yoav and Come Back (Light Therapy) by Josh Rouse.
(Yoav - Club Thing)
(Josh Rouse - Comeback (light therapy))
Anyway, we learned that there were a lot of things between Blues Dance and West Coast Swing that were similar and related but it wasn't until last night that that idea was fully explained. Essentially, the styling of West Coast, the musicality, is heavily saturated in the same ideas that are the basis for how Blues Dance works. Feeling the music, moving to the music, communicating with your dance partner. Obviously, West Coast has more form to go along with this, more moves that are common place, but I'm happy to finally fully discover this connection between two of my favorite dance styles.
