WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—Purdue's West Coast Swing Dance Society held an open to the public dance class on Saturday at Purdue Memorial Student Union. 

The club received a grant to bring in two professional dancers out of Clearwater, Florida.

West Coast Swing was the style dancers were taught.

The style is smoother and danced to any kind of groovy music with a six-count pattern.

The class welcomed all types of dancers from beginners to intermediate.

Dancer Christine Medin said it's great to expose the community to the world of dance.

"It's a dance that is constantly evolving. So it's a swing unlike any swing a lot of people are used to. Like Lindy Hope East Coast. But West Coast Swing is so interesting because you can play the top 40 hits."
