What is West Coast Swing (WCS)?
West Coast Swing (WCS) is California’s national dance and has been one of the most popular social dances worldwide for years!
It belongs to the family of swing dances (e.g. Lindy Hop, Balboa, Boogie Woogie, Blues) and found its origins in the 1940s. However, WCS has evolved with the music and has taken many influences from other dances (e.g. salsa, zouk, kizomba, tango argentino).
There are many more reasons why more and more people are falling in love with WCS
One of them is the freedom you get as a leader and especially as a follower. In hardly any other dance does the follower have as much to say as in WCS. In addition, we can improvise a lot and let our own style flow into this dance. This makes changing partners more exciting, because with each new partner a whole new dance is created!
Here is a short video that explains WCS in 2 minutes
The West Coast Swing Bootcamp for absolute Beginners will be tought by Clem & Evi. They have been dancing and teaching together since 2021 and give regular WCS classes for beginners and advanced Westies in Berlin. Clem, like Evi, have been dancing West Coast Swing for many years, traveling to international events where they are constantly learning, competing and dancing passionately with Westies from around the world. Both dancers have previous knowledge of musical instruments and other types of dance, such as ballroom and latin, salsa and solo dance (ballet, contemporary, jazz dance). Clem & Evi skilfully integrate this knowledge into their classes and look at WCS from a wide variety of perspectives. In the classes, Clem & Evi attach great importance to technique and clean execution, but also to a lot of fun and a friendly atmosphere.
