This special dance style originated on the West Coast where dancers adapted swing into a slot to fit better on screen and on crowded dance floors. This extremely popular style is danced to many types of music, including pop, classic swing, blues, dance beat and, more recently, to slower contemporary lyrical style music. At West Coast Swing events you will see social dancers, competitors and judges on the dance floor until the wee hours of the morning. Also popular are the competitive Jack and Jill events where dancers are paired randomly with partners where you learn to adapt and have a great dance with that person.
West Coast Swing is a special, widely popular style of swing that can be danced to a vast range of music. The Ballroom Dance Center has been a leader in the CSRA in bringing authentic West Coast Swing to the region. A beginner class is available in which dancers will develop essential, building block muscle memory. There is also an intermediate level class for advanced West Coast Swing dancers.
NOTE: THERE IS NO CLASS ON JULY 4TH OR NOVEMBER 28TH! The studio is closed for those holidays.
DanceSMART at The Ballroom Dance Center by taking advantage of our unlimited group classes!
The features of the group class format include the following:
Flexible Commitment – With our current format, start when you want and come when you can! You can choose UNLIMITED group classes or pick a single class that’s right for you. Drop-ins are always welcome!
Stand Alone Weekly Classes – We have found adults have so many responsibilities that they can’t always commit to every week over several months. This class format allows weekly attendees and drop-ins to get a complete class in their selected dance style each week.
Partner Movement Skills – All classes will focus on movement skills, social dance combinations and leading/following. We often hear dancers say, “I just don’t want to look stupid!” All classes will help you develop ease and comfort in social dancing. You may ask if you should focus on just one dance. We have found it often doesn’t matter which dance you do, but rather that you learn fundamental movement skills in partner dancing.
More Dance Opportunities – Additional development of your dance skills will happen at the Second Friday Practice Session, the Fourth Friday Dance and on your private lesson.
