WCS Lessons and Dancing
We've got an hour of lessons and two hours of west coast swing dancing! Lessons: 8:00 - 9:00 PM. Show up for either our newcomer-friendly fundamentals series or our advanced-beginner/intermediate class! Our beginner series is a sequence of 4 classes that build on each other to get you out on the dance floor! Check our Facebook events to find out which week we're in. When we're in week 3 or 4 of our beginner series, we will hold a drop in lesson from 9-9:30 to get brand new dancers on their feet! Open dancing: 9:00-11:00 PM. We're all friendly folks here at UCSwing. Ask any of us to dance! Cost: $7 regular / $5 student. Your first visit is free! Come try it out!

What we're about

Our goal is to create an environment where everyone can learn this amazing dance and have an excellent night of dancing, regardless of their skill level. We are an open-role degendered dancing community, so regardless of which role you prefer, you are welcome here!
