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. After taking this class, it is important to stay and social dance (dancing with various other dancers). Social dancing is the key to progressing. 

Important: If you are a newcomer (or don't really remember the basics), please only join the beginner class on Week 1 or 2  of the monthly series (see the calendar). 

8:30pm: Arrival for 2nd Class and Social Dancing

Please arrive for the Int/Adv class at 8:30pm so that our classes can start on time. Remember to wash your hands when you arrive. 

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: 1) Getting into the Int/Adv class is based on how well a dancer can socially dance a basic dance. The importance of social dancing can not be overstated. 2) If you are invited to the Int/Adv class, you are expected to continue to attend the Beginner class to continue expanding your knowledge. 3) 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.
