Let's meetup for our Free Beginning West Coast Swing Dance Lessons

This meetup will be the kickoff of our five week course teaching beginner West Coast Swing.  The entire course is absolutely free (really!).     


The classes will be held each Wednesday at Club Savoy from 7:15 - 8:15 during the month of April, and will cover the foundation patterns and basic concepts of West Coast Swing dancing.   


You don't need a partner or dance experience, so come on out and learn to dance while meeting new friends!

    OMG! You guys did FANTASTIC in class tonight!! I still cannot believe we got through three moves. I was especially glad to see so many join in the rotations with the Int/Adv group after our class. Keep taking advantage of these opportunities to dance...It will really help you solidify the steps and really progress fast. Please make sure you practice this week so you can get those moves smoothed out and into muscle memory. You can practice anywhere ... kitchen while cooking, living room while watching TV etc... The moves will eventually feel natural...you just need repetitions. Next week we will do a review of what we learned this week and then start working on two very important concepts in WCS called stretch and compression with two new moves! I can't wait!

    You guys really did well! You should be proud!

      sorry one too many it's

    • Tim

      Steven, you're getting all the good question points! Something that allows you to slide a little like a leather or suede sole would be better than a rubber sole like a sneaker but I don't want anyone to feel like they need to go buy something for the class. Eventually you will want to get a pair of suede sole dance shoes. It just helps you glide easier. :-)

    I'm a modern dancer and I do musical theatre. I've never taken ballroom classes.

    • Tim

      Hi Nicole! One of the things that separate West Coast Swing from other ballroom dances is the amount of freedom you have to express yourself. There are some basic rules of course but the dance is completely open to allow for other dance influences such as Modern, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Contemporary, etc... I think you're going to love it!

  • Tim

    Hey Everyone ...Please make sure you RSVP if you will be taking the classes. I have folks coming from other channels like Facebook, friends, friends of friends etc.. and I'm trying to get a head count. Thanks!

    Hi Everyone,

    Even though this Meetup is about learning WCS, I'm curious as to what other dances you folks know. For me, I really only "know" WCS, but I can fake my way through Night Club 2-Step, Country Waltz, and Country 2-Step. Anyone else care to share?

      30 years ago I taught western dance at the clubs and on the base, couples dance and line dances. We shall see how much I remember. I'm not ready to profess expertise at anything but believe I can pick up WCS with your guidance. It has been a looooong time. I may have taught your parents :-)

    • Tim

      LOL! Perfect! The next dance where a 2-Step is played it's me and you on the dance floor giggling like 3rd graders...Deal? To me dancing is all about having fun!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
