You should have taken the  West Coast Swing Starter class or equivalent.   This class is for Beg1/2 dancers.  This class will cover lead/follow, timing and technique and these  basic 12 patterns; sugar push, left side pass, right side pass, starter steps, sugar tuck, left side pass right and left turns, right side pass no turn, whip, basket, fake whip and reverse whip.    In each lesson we will cover necessary elements through  drills and I review previous patterns learned.

Drop in classes – It’s best to attend all classes for gaining all the info but drop ins are allowable.  In each class I go over the Intro pattern and timing. If you don’t have any prior experience you may become frustrated.  This is when a private lesson would benefit.

Come with a partner or come as a single.  We will rotate partners which helps in your learning.  Invite others. You will have time to practice with your dance partner.

Attire: Clothing: Clean, casual and comfortable. Shoes: dance shoes, or shoes you can easily move in.

Explanation of dance level ability:


Newcomer :  No experience needed.  A newcomer is a dancer with no previous dance instruction. You will concentrate on learning the basic patterns and lead/follow.  When more information is given do the best you can but during our practice time you should keep reviewing the basic pattern in order to become more confident with it. You will learn basic patterns with emphasis placed on Lead/Follow and timing for the particular dance covered. This is a great time for practice!

Beginner1/2:  Some experience expected.  A beginner dancer that has had some previous training and has knowledge of Lead/Follow, connection, timing and footwork.  When the class moves along you should be able to understand the concepts presented. You will want to work on more  pattern variations, developing a stronger understanding of connection, rhythm and partnering and technique.  You should be practicing flow and continuity of your dancing.  Learning multiple styles of dance will elevate your dancing more quickly.

Beginner/Intermediate: This dancer should have had the basics of the dance taught. Have had experience in leading/following different patterns. You will learn new patterns and how to perfect your techniques and continuity in the dance.

Group classes are open to both singles and couples. I lead and follow as needed.
