Learn West Coast Swing Dancing - No Partner Needed!
https://youtu.be/v4fRV0aG3lc Description West Coast Swing (WCS) is one of the most versatile, and social, dances around. It can be danced to multiple styles of music, including: Pop. R&B, Hip-Hop, Dance, Electronic, Jazz, and Blues, among others. Each week, we bring in a local instructor to teach two lessons: – a 7:00 novice-level lesson – a 7:45 intermediate-level lesson The 7:00 class is a great class for those newer to the dance, or those wishing to brush up on the fundamentals of WCS. The 7:45 class builds on the dance's foundation, adding variations of moves, patterns, and techniques, to make the dance even more fun. And at 8:30, we open the dance floor and socialize and dance for three hours and spend time with new and long-time friends. The WCW website has full details on the evening ( http://www.westcoastwednesdays.com/ ). We look forward to meeting you, and making your West Coast Wednesdays (WCW) experience enjoyable--one you'll want to come back to again. Times and Cost For the evening: - The beginner/novice lesson is at 7:00 pm. - The intermediate lesson is at 7:45 pm. - Open dancing goes from 8:30 - 11:30 pm. The cost: - $6 cover for the dance - $5 per lesson For lessons, there's no need to bring a partner, as instructors rotate students during the lesson.
