West Coast Swing Classes
6:00 Beg West Coast Swing
7:15 Beginning Plus WC Swing
8:30 Level 2 WC Swing
West Coast Swing is a smooth, sexy partner dance done to hip hop, blues and Top 40 music. It comes from Lindy hop, the original Swing, but has a completely different feel and look to match modern music. WCS is all about connection with your partner and play with the music. It's sultry and can be fast or slow, which makes it appropriate for all ages. No flying girls in this dance! And it sure as heck isn't cowboy swing! You can check out videos on www.BendDance.com under Fun Stuff.
The 6:00 Beginning Class is for total newbies or those who want a review. We'll learn the basic steps and rhythms of the dance. Side pass, underarm turn, sugar push, whip and a few easy variations, plus the most essential technique concepts, such as anchor, stretch, body lead, flashlighting, momentum and connection.
Beginning Plus is for those who have taken one or two months of Beginning and are ready for the next step. More cool moves and fun technique.
Level 2 teaches you more fun variations and solidifies technique to make you a smoother lead and silky follow.
No partner needed! New classes start the first Thurs of each month and you can pre-register by calling, texting or emailing Victoria at[masked] or [masked]. Limited to 10 men and 10 women so register at least a week in advance to ensure space. You can only start the first week, and should be able to commit to all 4 weeks but new classes start consistently the first week of every month. Check out videos and more info on www.BendDance.com.
