West Coast Swing in Norwalk, CT

Every Thursday

West Coast Swing is one of the many different styles of swing dancing originating from the original 1928 Lindy Hop. West Coast Swing is so much fun to experience because it incorporates many different styles of movement and music. It is known as the smoother and sexier version of the swing dance family.

Schedule

7:15pm: Check-in for 1st Class

During our check-in process we will take your temperature, have you sign a waiver (if this is your first time at the studio), answer some health questions, wash your hands, and enter the studio. Our doors will remain closed once the class begins. Please bring your own water. 

7:30pm: West Coast Swing (Beginners)

This class is a beginner class that is designed for the newcomer. This class will examine West Coast Swing from the beginning, guiding you through the basic steps and rhythms of West Coast Swing. Each week, the class will review and continue learning new moves and techniques. This class is also encouraged for dancers who are familiar with West Coast Swing because it will help continue to develop their technique and fundamentals. 

8:30pm: Check-in for 2nd Class

Please wait in your car (or outside) before entering the studio at 8:30pm. We will use the same process as with the 7:15 check-in (see above). 

8:45pm: West Coast Swing (Int/Adv)

This class is designed for students that already have some knowledge of West Coast Swing and/or have taken the beginner class enough times to perform the basics fluidly. In this class, we will focus on intermediate moves, syncopations, styling, and musicality. Occasionally, this class will learn choreography to incorporate all the aspects of West Coast Swing that have been learned and to explore new aspects of the dance. 

Note: This class is by invitation. Please check with Erik prior to attending this class. 

9:45pm: Social Dancing

Enjoy some time dancing and socializing! This is where the magic happens. The more you dance, the better your dance will become.
