Learn West Coast Swing every Wednesday at You Should Be Dancing Studio!
West Coast Swing is the incredibly smooth, elastic-looking partner dance that continues to grow in popularity for its versatility. Danced to R&B, pop, hip-hop, blues, and even club music, this dance style continues to evolve with its audience and the popular music scene. Check out Sophie, instructor at You Should Be Dancing, dancing West Coast Swing:
Classes are at 7:00pm (pre-intermediate) and 8:00pm (beginner and intermediate). One class is $25 or $90 for four weeks. Descriptions of each level are below.
Beginner Level with Julien (8:00pm)
This introductory course requires little or no prior dance experience. Students will learn how to lead or follow basic West Coast Swing patterns, with attention given to footwork, partnering, and timing. We suggest between 2 and 4 months of this course before moving on to Pre-Intermediate.
Pre-intermediate Level with Sophie (7:00pm)
This course requires that students know the West Coast Swing basic patterns (sugar push, left side pass, right side pass, and whip), and have a strong foundation in West Coast Swing timing and partnering. Variations on the basic patterns will be introduced and combined to create simple sequences, and students will continue to develop lead/follow technique, partnering skills, timing, and dance floor etiquette.
Intermediate Level with Sophie (8:00pm)
Before taking this course, students should be executing a variety of West Coast Swing patterns with strong lead/follow technique, good footwork, and excellent timing. More advanced patterns will be introduced with syncopated footwork and alternative connection points between partners, further developing students’ lead/follow ability and understanding of timing.
Join us for a West Coast Swing party 9:15pm - Midnight! See the dedicated Meetup event for more details.
