What is West Coast Swing?

We start from the tippy-top and break down every step of the fundamentals of West Coast Swing. It is perfect if you have never tried partner dancing before.

    It was a great night of West Coast Swing. We had over 35 people show up even with the light snow coming down. It's going to be a great month. If you missed it you can start next Thursday (put it in your calendar) or you'll have to wait till next month.

    We're dancing tonight! So far, there's no accumulation in the Stamford to Fairfield area. Norwalk is clear. Our Beginner lesson starts at 7:30pm, but the food arrives a little earlier. Remember to come to the back of the building (3 Quincy), the entrance is next to the covered parking lot.

    Let's make it a fun, social evening,

    I am Carla, its my first time in the ballroom dance saloom. My husband and I are very excited!

      I'm looking forward to meeting you and your husband. We'll make sure to take it slow and get you dancing on your first night out.

    I'm super-psyched about our first class of West Coast Swing on Thursday. If you have any questions or need encouragement, please ask. Most important - you do not need a partner. We have many regular attending dancers and we rotate frequently. It's a great way to meet people.

    Bring a couple of pairs of shoes in case you feel more comfortable in one pair over another.

    This will be our first Swing class. My husband Jim and I love to dance and want to try out Swing dancing. Could someone let us know, what would be the best shoes to wear on our feet? Thank you.

      Hey Susan - For your first lessons any leather bottom type shoe will work. Nothing too high for the heel. Here's an article I wrote about the footwear but feel free to bring 2 or 3 pairs of shoes in case something doesn't feel quite right. http://www.swingshoes...­

    I'm really looking forward to next Thursday's West Coast Swing night. We have about 40 regular people, with some bringing dinner, and drinks. It's really one of the best kept secrets in the CT area.

    If you're looking for a good time and a way to meet a lot of very positive people, get ready for Thursday.

    Please RSVP if you haven't already,
    Erik

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
