“I came to BWestie through a friend – I started in an intermediate month and still managed to retain some information. The teachers are fabulous, and this community is amazing – Tuesday nights are the highlights of my week.” – Madaline B.

“When I first moved Vermont, I missed the large swing dance community I’d had in Boston. Although I was new to West Coast, after one night at BWestie, I was hooked.” – Alison N.

“I began dancing at Bwestie because of one friend and I ended up making many more. As my involvement in this dance community grew, so did my dance skills, my attitude, and my confidence. I can’t think of a better way to spend my time than a night out at the North End Studios. It’s an Investment that’s well worth any effort.” – Molly S.

“When I first started coming to Burlington Westie classes I had zero interest in West Coast Swing. And yet I keep coming because the community is great, the people are welcoming, and the social dances are fun. Incidentally now I love West Coast Swing too.” – Shannon B.

“I’ve found that I love west coast swing, even more than I love east coast, which is saying something. I was a little nervous my first night there, but it was so much fun, and once I started dancing, the nerves just melted away.” – Caitlin L.

“I discovered Burlington Westie in its first few months, and it’s been my first exposure to any kind of dancing. It hooked me hard, and I’ve considered WCS as my primary dance ever since. The friendship, development, and support that B-Westie gave me has been the best foundation I could ask for, especially as I go around learning new styles/techniques/dances and growing myself as a dancer. It makes me so proud to say that I first started with B-Westie, and so happy to come back and see how it has grown. <3″ – Megan C.

“Nicest dance place and people in town.” – Helmut B.
