Bill Goschen brings his 30+ years of dance experience to the Western and Eastern shores. Bill started dancing
Hustle and then he transitioned to Swing and Jazz. Today, Bill teaches 8 Count Lindy Swing, West Coast Swing, 6 Count
Swing, Charleston, Shag, Balboa, American Cha-Cha, and Hustle.
As a professionally trained dancer (see Bill's bio), Bill (aka the SwingMaster) offers
a variety of classes in American dances. He specializes in teaching the Lindy, (originally created from a combination
of Charleston and African dance) along with many other American dances that originated in this Country throughout the 1920's
up until the Disco days of the 1970's. When Bill discovered Swing, he went directly to the top and studied under Frankie Manning and his successors. Frankie was the last living survivor of the original Swing dancers. In addition, Bill studied under and modeled his West Coast Swing style after
Craig Hutchinson. Both Frankie and
Craig were inducted into the World
Swing Dance Council Hall of Fame.
retired Industrial Construction/Commercial Diver, Coast Guard Licensed Master Ocean Operator, and business owner, now
