West Coast Swing Club (WCSC) is a social dance club at UC Davis that primarily focuses on West Coast Swing - the official California State Dance. Officially recognized in the California Senate under Senate Bill 2460 in 1988, West Coast Swing is a partner dance with roots in Lindy Hop - but with distinct differences - including the choice of music and the style of dance. We aim to provide students the opportunity to participate in social West Coast Swing dancing and receive professional instructions to compete in West Coast Swing competitions throughout the world.
