Whip (dance)

Whip is a kind of swing dance popular in Texas, USA, danced to Rhythm and Blues music. It is a slotted dance, similar to West Coast Swing.

Because of cross-pollination, the two dances may look pretty similar. Some say that Whip is more sensual and uses more body work (rolls, waves, etc.), while West Coast Swing puts more emphasis on footwork. However this may well be attributed to the prevalent music used: with slower music, proficient "Westies" may go extremely sensual.
