We teach three levels each Thursday to a fun mixture of couples and singles.

It’s a very social atmosphere, and all dancers rotate partners, so you’ll meet and dance with everyone.
We want you to learn your best, so when you begin, you’ll start with a month at the beginner’s level, building your foundation, and work your way up, improving your skills month by month.
After about 4 months, you’ll be ready for our advanced class and then, the sky’s the limit.

 Detailed Class Descriptions

 6:30pm Beginning

This class starts at square one for new beginners, and adds something new each week.  You will learn the basic 6 count patterns of West Coast Swing, as well as a couple of 8-count whip patterns.  A strong foundation. Drop-ins are NOT recommended in beginning class after week 2. Please wait until the next session.

7:30pm  Intermediate
You will learn a variety of whips, turns and tuck patterns. This class continues to lay the foundation of great West Coast Swing basics at the next level, to get you ready for “drop-in” style night-club classes and more advanced study. Expect to take three months of this level before moving to Level 3.

8:30pm  Intermediate/Advanced
Our most popular class!
This class is aimed at ensuring your success on the social dance floor through learning leadable patterns, syncopation and styling, all couched in solid individual and partnering technique.

Advanced concepts of connection, centering, leading and following techniques, and timing are addressed in the context of material that you can use on the dance floor for good fun! Individual months may have themes such as spin technique, footwork, or musicality.
