West Coast Swing (Beginner Level 1) 8-Week Course START!
Time & Location
About the Event
Join our 8-week courses and learn West Coast Swing, the smooth and modern partner dance from North America! It's fun because it's so versatile, enabling you to dance to any music (hip-hop, RnB, contemporary, blues... and more!). We warn you: it's addicting. 😁 Classes taught by Gordon Mac Donald (Netherlands) and Jennifer Liu (Canada).
** This season, courses require registration with a fixed partner due to COVID regulations. See "Course Info" section if you do not have a dance partner yet. **
✪ TUESDAYS 20:00–21:00 / BEGINNERS LEVEL 1 ✪
This is the right level to enter if you have joined a beginners bootcamp or have little to no partner dancing experience. Here, we cover the fundamentals: our 6- and 8-count rhythms, the basic patterns that are the building block to other patterns, the "elastic" feel of WCS, and how to dance full songs.
✪ TUESDAYS 21:15–22:15 / BEGINNERS LEVEL 2 ✪
This level introduces more advanced concepts, with more complex patterns, techniques that focus on clear communication with your partner, and combinations that will use everything you learn in Level 1.
✪ INTERMEDIATE ✪
Special curriculum provided for escalating the current level of the dancers that make up the group. This level requires an invitation by the instructor to join. If you are interested, please send us a message.

In search of a partner? Try posting a message on the WCSA Facebook group and register for the waitlist. (Go to the registration form and select the "waitlist" option—you do not need to pay until you have found a partner). If another solo registrant applies, we will match up partners according to the order of the waitlist. If you find a partner in the meantime, send us a message of your partner's contact information and we will add him/her to your registration.
- Partner rotation: Normally in WCS, we rotate partners during class. Due to COVID, classes will have fixed partners until further notice.
- If you do not feel well, or you have been in contact with someone in the past 14 days that has tested positive for COVID-19—please rest/stay at home!
- We will ensure proper spacing between couples, and cleaning in the 15-minute break between classes.
- If COVID measures increase again such that partner dance classes indoors are not allowed, we will provide a refund of the remainder of the season.
