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.


Sarah Vann Drake & Kyle Redd (Part 2)

In the second part of our conversation with Sarah and Kyle, we talked about a wide range of topics. Sarah shared some of her feelings about the new generation of professionals. We talked about how they approach running SwingCouver, how dancers can support events so they can pay their staff, and a new event that Sarah and Kyle are putting together for next year. They told us the stories behind some of our favorite routines, how they approach choreography, and what they think of the routines currently on the circuit. And we chatted about the dance today, where it's going, and their excitement and their concerns. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this open, honest conversation with two of our most experienced and accomplished professionals.
