The West Coast Swing Life Told by FRIENDS


Ah, the life of the Westie… We eat, we breathe, we dance. WEST COAST SWING THAT IS. Whether you have been a westie for a year or 20+ years, you are a part of this marvelous community. So, without further ado, I present – The West Coast Swing Life as told by “FRIENDS.”
