WCS Fundamentals

About this class
Icon_ionic-ios-arrow-back Copy 4

West Coast Swing classes are taught by Eric and other guest instructors. No pre-registration or partner required – just come on in! Explore the fundamental movements of West Coast Swing with a focus on body mechanics, partnership, and footwork for all levels. This is a three-month series that starts the first Wednesday of each month. Enrollment is only allowed during the first two weeks of each month. No partner or experience is required. PLEASE NOTE: This is a three-month progressive series that starts the first Wednesday of each month. You may take the three months (A, B, C) in any order, but you must take all three twice before moving into the Intermediate Class. Because each month is a progressive syllabus, enrollment will only be allowed in the first two weeks of the month (those joining the second week will have to catch up). Those new to West Coast Swing will still be eligible for a discount on their first month.

Intermediate West Coast Swing

About this class
Icon_ionic-ios-arrow-back Copy 4

You must have a firm grasp of West Coast Swing fundamentals and, if moving out of WCS Fundamentals, you must get permission to join the Intermediate Class. There is a difference between doing West Coast Swing and doing it well. In this class you will not only expand your repertoire of moves and styling but also ensure it feels good to your partner – and also learn how to fit them to the music. (Because there’s also a difference between doing West Coast Swing and dancing it.) A new topic will be explored each month, rotating between patterns, musicality, and partnership, with a continual emphasis on proper technique and improving connection. This class is open to anyone who is comfortable with WCS basics and fundamentals. We encourage anyone interested in this class to take WCS Fundamentals first or concurrently. No partner is required.
