Guided Practice

Guided Practices:

If you have established skills in all the Progressive levels, our guided practices are for You! We’ll be offering classes on specific topics to elevate your WCS, with lots of dancing. We’ll post these events soon with details.

Progressive Levels

Progressive Lessons:

Save Sunday evenings for progressive classes for Beginners and Improvers. These will be in 4-week blocks. If you already know some WCS, you might want to take these as a refresher, or try the other role! 

Our Workshops

Social Events:

We’ll be collaborating with DalkingsSwing to offer a monthly socials for Blues and WCS dancers. These have been successful in the past, and we hope you’ll join us. Watch for details when we post the events!
