The beginning West Coast Swing class will start at 6:30pm as usual, where we will take about 35 minutes to review our basic WCS, then the intermediate class will arrive at 7 and ready to dance at about 7:10.  After brief introductions,  we will all dance together, changing partners regularly for those who wish, and the beginning class will enjoy the experience of dancing with those who have been dancing WCS a little longer.  We will also  introduce a little waltzing as well as some East Coast Swing for your dancing pleasure.  We are all learners of this wonderful experience with movement and music…everyone will have a comfortable time no matter your experience in dancing.
