Whip is a type of swing dance, danced to rhythm and blues music.

Style[edit]

Whip is a slotted dance similar to West Coast Swing. Because of cross-pollination, the two dances may look pretty similar. Some[who?] say that Whip is more sensual and uses more body work (body rolls, body 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 become extremely sensual. It is mainly used with songs that have a trap style beat with repetitive rhythms.
