Making Your Own Swing Routine

One of the best ways to practice your new dance skills is to combine the variations you have learned in patterns that you create yourself. The more you practice, the more interesting your dancing will become. Here are some routines we have come up with to begin your practice of the East Coast Swing. See what you can create!

Turn the Ballroom for Beginners CD or cassette to track #7-10 to practice the Swing. Track #7 is the slowest of the three songs, while track #10 is the fastest. (Click here to find information on the Ballroom Dance Kit.)
