Level 2 Routine Class

Designed to help you progress

There are 2 reasons why we have no choice but to add another class to the Progressive Lessons at Westify.  First, we are running out of space because of the great support and second, we have more learning demands than we can accommodate with only two classes.  These 4-week sessions or weekly drop-ins represent our best effort to match your commitment to become a better dancer:

Group WCS Classes

  • Level 1 (West Coast Swing Primer Series) - This series is geared for those just starting WCS.  It introduces you to the basic patterns and essential techniques of West Coast Swing. At the end of the series you will have the tools and skills to succeed on the social dance floor, and prepare you for upper level concepts. Taking the course 2-3 times will help ground your fundamentals for better dancing.

  • Level 2 (Technical Foundational Series) - Geared for those ready to get serious about WCS.  You will receive the tools and techniques needed to take your dancing to the next level.  After you’ve mastered your 6 and 8 count patterns, this class will give you a better understanding of the dance and build your repertoire. The class will use patterns to demonstrate more advanced theories and technique. Each month there will be a different theme that the class will be focusing on, topics in the class include musicality, partnering skills, how to vary your basics, and much more. Pre-requisite – 1) Must know and dance level 1 basic patterns with proper timing 2) Instructor approval.

  • Level 3 (Core Refinement Series) - This class is for the experienced dancer now ready to learn different philosophies, refine your technique, and to start adding "play" to your dance. You must have instructor's approval to attend this class.  We encourage those attending this class at 7 p.m. to stay for the 8:00 classes as well at no additional cost.  This is a great way to freshen up on your basics, as well as help those in the class that are learning.  The dance will then start at 9:00

We want everyone to be able to progress through these classes and we are doing our best to accommodate everyone.  We have amazing instructors who put a lot of time into their lessons so that everyone can progress.  There is nowhere else in the country that you can get this kind of instruction for only $3 to $5 per lesson.  Thank you to everyone who has been attending the classes!

**Pre-requisite before entering Course 2, to be able to execute what you learn in Course 2 you have to have the proper technique first.

Level II Intensive: "Embellishing your WCS"

You will be getting tips for styling up your WCS, Musicality, Phrasing to WCS and you will learn a lot of syncopations to incorporate into your dance (without hijacking ladies)!! 

**Every time I run this course the syllabus changes, so that you can continue to explore and learn.  Last time our embellishments focused a lot on our Width and Rotation in our dance, next time we will be working a lot with our height and length.


One hour each week for four weeks,  If you are interesting in scheduling a ladies class please contact me. The space will be limited to only six women, it is a group private lesson that makes it very affordable for any one!!
