December Dance *Date Changed to November 30th*

BWestie Friendsgiving, Potluck, and US Open Swing Dance Championships Watch Party – Saturday *November 30th*

***Our First Saturday Dance for December has been moved to the Last Saturday of November***
On this weekend each year, we watch the best West Coast Swing Dancers give it their all. It’s usually a small watch party. But this year we are holding it in the Studio! We will have about 3 hours of performances and competitions from the best dancers playing on the big screen, couches and chairs to watch from, a potluck set up next to the kitchen, and some dance space for those who want to dance early.
Then we will clean up and prepare for our regular monthly dance, but one week early.
Come eat, come dance, come be inspired!
More details to come!

RSVP on Facebook!

For brand new folks just starting out, we have a introductory lesson in West Coast Swing at 7:30pm. As always, first time dancers get in for FREE, so be sure to invite your friends!

Are you new to West Coast Swing? Don’t want to pay money to try something new? You’ll be happy to know that all of our First Saturday Dances (one every month) are free for First-Timers new to West Coast Swing. Just show up before 7:30 to check in at the door and take a quick 30 minute crash course in the basic steps of our dance. Then stay as long as you are comfortable, dance a little bit, ask questions, socialize, and have fun!

See you on the dance floor!

FAQ

What kind of music do you play?
Unless otherwise specified, the dances are West Coast Swing, with slower songs for Fusion later in the night. Our DJ’s also throw in an occasional Waltz, Two Step, Nightclub, or Polka.

How can I get people to ask me to dance?
Make it easy for others to ask you by standing near the dance floor, visibly enjoying the song, making eye contact, and smiling. Always thank your partner after the dance.

When is it okay to decline a dance?
If you need a break, have an injury, or promised the song to someone else. After declining a dance, do not agree to dance that song with another person! If you decline a dance, it is nice to find that person later and ask them.

What do I do if I have a problem or complaint?
Let the organizers know! We strive to make our events enjoyable for everyone, and need to know of problems so we can work to fix them.

I left something in the studio, when can I get it?
