Ren Jen Dance West Coast Swing logo

Welcome to the RenJen Dance blog, where “Ren”, Rene Arreola, and “Jen”, Jennifer Filzen, share their love of dancing West Coast Swing. This is like a blog of our dances, starting at the beginning of the COVID-19 shelter-in-place. Since we are not able to teach dance or participate or hold social dances, we’ve decided to share with the world the way we dance West Coast Swing.
