Imperial Swing is a cross between East Coast and West Coast Swing as it is done in slot and in the round. It started at the Club Imperial in St Louis. George Edick, who owned the club, let teenagers dance on the lower level and the dancers of the time taught them what was learned from their trips to the east coast. As people traveled around, they added parts of west coast, bop and Carolina shag to complement the dance and make it distinctive. “The Imperial” has elements of “East Coast”, “West Coast”, “Carolina Shag” and “Bop”.
Everyone is welcome at club dances. You do not need to be a club member. Each dance club offers free or nominal cost dance lessons for beginners the hour before their dance starts. Partners are not needed for the dance lessons. Most clubs use the east coast styling of dance (unless stated differently below). Each club has its own website that lists the dates of their dances.
