WCS WORKSHOPS 

LEVELS

We want EVERYONE to enjoy and get the most out of the workshops this weekend. This means being realistic and ONLY attending workshops that are appropriate to your current level of WCS dance experience. Please respect and be fair to your fellow dancers. If you are struggling in a workshop you are NOT at the right level for your current experience.

Classes are monitored to ensure everyone is in the appropriate level for their current dance abilities.

LEVEL 2

You know the basics of West Coast Swing (sugar push, left side pass, right side underarm turn, tuck turn and whip). You have been dancing WCS for at least 6 months and don’t have to count the steps. You want to learn cool new moves, shapes and variations. You want to improve and fully grasp the West Coast Swing fundamentals.

LEVEL 3

You know the basic steps and some variations of those. You sometimes have problems keeping the connection to your partner and want to work on your technique and timing. You would like to learn how to keep connection during the whole dance and feel comfortable dancing with higher level dancers. You want to be able to dance to different tempos of the music and learn how to be more musical.

LEVEL 4 ( WSDC intermediate points or attend higher level workshops as WSDC Registry events) 

You don’t have a problem dancing to different tempos and feel comfortable dancing with different level dancers. You want to learn footwork and how to improve your own style as well as musicality, learning how to accent the music. You want to learn more complex patterns and how to integrate them into your dance.
