The International Rally West Coast Swing is a way for students to learn West Coast Swing choreography to a contemporary song and then demonstrate it in public. This public performance helps build awareness of West Coast Swing. It also gives students a method to improve their dancing and build enduring friendships with their West Coast Swing community.
