Sometimes relationships, even oddly-paired ones, take some push and pull. Jason Colacino and Katie Boyle know this firsthand as they are considered an unexpected dancing duo who dance to the “West Coast Swing.” If you’re not familiar with this dance it’s “identified by how elastic the movements are, with the two dancers rhythmically pushing and pulling at each other.”
The “West Coast Swing” dance also has traces of the famous Lindy Hop, which includes a partner. It’s also important to note that there is also room for improvisation during the performance. This is a strong suit for Katie and Jason, which has earned them the title in several national championships.
Watch how well this dancing duo intricately moves, spins, and improvises to The Rolling Stones’ “Honky Tonk Woman” all while having a good ‘ol time! They dance to the famous rock song in a playful yet disciplined manner, proving that “West Coast Swing,” has the best of both worlds!
