Syncopations for West Coast Swing

Syncopations for West Coast Swing 

Workshops and Practice
on Saturday, February 4, 2023
Norwalk, CT

Syncopations are the method of moving your body differently than the standard rhythm of West Coast Swing. They are one of the best and easiest ways take your dance to the next level. Syncopations also enable a dancer to gain further control of their movement, create more variety in their footwork, and look more musical. It is essential information to become an intermediate dancer.
