West Coast Swing Classes

Beginning West Coast Swing (Level 1 Class)

     Learning to dance West Coast Swing can seem like a rather daunting task for those who have ever watched the dance.  To make this seemingly complex dance easier to digest, we have broken down the basic concepts into three different classes.  Since each 4-week class is designed for beginners, students can take these classes in any order they wish!  The three classes are:

"Passes and Spins" 

"Pushes and Tucks"

"Whips and More!"

     Each dance class in Springfield Missouri meets once a week and can be used with FREE Open Practice nights to achieve outstanding results!

West Coast Swing Level 2

Instructor: Obi Simpson

4-weeks: $35 per person

8-weeks (two sessions): $65 per person 

     The level 2 West Coast Swing dance class builds on skills learned in the level 1 class.  The purpose of this class is to help students take WCS and make it their own.  We focus on both simple and complex variations of the basic concepts and begin to further build ideas such as connection, musicality, and improvisation.  

     A basic understanding of Passes, Pushes, Tucks, and Whips are required to take this class.  Like all of our Level 2 dance classes, the Level 1 class is free for anyone who is enrolled!
