Mondays April 1st, 8th, 22nd, 29th
**see our special event on April 15th, our first Montpelier Dance Open House and Potluck!
Come dance with us!
Our beginner series will cover a very simple and flowy partner dance called Nightclub Two Step. Contrary to it’s name, it was designed to be a very simple and beautiful dance that couples could learn for their weddings. Just $20 for all 4 weeks of lessons! Come with your partner, or come on your own. You will have the option to stay with your partner throughout class or switch with other students to learn faster.
For those who have already taken a beginner series in West Coast Swing, we will be having another series for you. This one will be of Upgrading Basic Patterns. Rather than learning all new patterns, Leaders will learn how to jazz up what they already know, and Followers will improve at reading and interpreting the subtleties of their partners movements and will likely improve some other techniques while at it.
*You do not need to come with your own partner, there will be plenty of people to dance with you here already.
RSVP on Facebook here!

The BWestie Community began to share West Coast Swing (WCS) in Vermont 8 years ago. It’s students and community members have brought WCS to new places as they have spread out and have competed regionally, nationally, and internationally. Anyone can learn either role (leading or following) in our classes and all of our instructors dance both roles.

What is West Coast Swing? It is a modern lead-follow social dance that evolved from Lindy Hop and has been influenced by Ballroom, Hustle, Country Western, Ballet, Lyrical, Hip Hop and more, and combines the best techniques from each into one sexy, smooth, and sophisticated partner dance. It is danced to a wide range of music, so anyone can dance to music they like to listen to.
*Wear comfortable clothes and bring a pair of dry, indoor, non-skid shoes! First time dancers are encouraged to come! NO PARTNER NECESSARY. By that we mean you do not need to come with a partner to learn this partner dance. Learning to dance is a social activity. You will change partners and meet new people in our classes.
