The Naked Truth: Real Talk about West Coast Swing

70 EpisodesProduced by Eric JacobsonWebsite

A weekly podcast where host Eric Jacobson discusses West Coast Swing, our dance community, and the impact they both have on all of us personally.


Robert Royston

The legendary Robert Royston joins us to discuss his early days in West Coast Swing, what he did to become a dance professional, and how the dance scene has changed over the last thirty years. We talked about the problems of judging, how to balance the past and future of the dance, and what excites him about what is happening in our community right now. He also shared with us his personal insecurities, why he dislikes “Facebook petting,” and what’s next for him as he thinks about his own legacy. Listen to find out why humility and a dose of arrogance are important for success in the dance world, and why we shouldn’t give every dance a standing ovation.
