About the Classes
We get you moving, we start with footwork warm-ups, across the floor drills to help you understand timing and rhythm, we go over the connection with a partner. If you’ve never danced before, our classes are the perfect place to start! We take you through a simple but fun dance routine that will get your body moving and completely energise you. Both classes are based on West Coast Swing the dance that gives goosebumps on the back of the neck.
During the course of both lessons, we will work on your 4, 6 and 8 count patterns, footwork, framework, and variations. We will help you understand musicality, and how to structure music into the dance and most importantly how to enjoy dancing with your partner to share in the experience of playtime.
