West Coast Swing at Dance Dimensions in Norwalk, CT - September 3, 2015
Our West Coast Swing classes in Norwalk, CT are still growing. Our Week 1 class on Thursday, September 3, 2015 was attended by 37 dancers, of which 13 were newcomers to West Coast Swing. Our regular dancers attend the beginner class to continuously improve their basic knowledge (a true dancer never graduates from a beginner class) and to warm up for the Intermediate/Advanced class afterwards.
West Coast Swing at Dance Dimensions in Norwalk, CT - August 20, 2015
We had 30 dancers in the West Coast Swing beginner class in Norwalk, CT on August 20, 2015. This was wonderful because it was a Week 3 (of a 4 week series). There is a lot of momentum building in our dance classes. Our Intermediate class also had 30 people and our dance was attended by over 50 people. This is definitely one of the best West Coast Swing scenes in Connecticut.

Dance Dimensions New Dance Floor - February 2, 2015
During the winter storm on February 2, 2015, Dance Dimensions replaced its entire dance floor. Formerly, the floor was a high-gloss, very fast surface. The new dance floor is perfect without any separations and a excellent service for all partner dancing.

Hustle is the most dynamic dance of the dance-family. Tuesday Hustle on Dec 8, 2009 is still representing this fierce dance. It's a great dance to have fun, get in shape and meet a bunch of new people.
It's hard to know on which night to go to dance in Norwalk....especially with a dance as fierce as Hustle! Our last dance of 2008 on Tues, Dec 30 had 30 hard core dancers and our guest instructor Steve Neeren from NYC.
Well - That's it! 2008 is over. But, 2009 is going to make last year look like a practice party. See you there!
