Do you love dancing or always wanted to try?! This is a group for all levels and ages of dancers, from newbies to advanced. The organizers are lovers of West Coast Swing, and we may post about other dances from time to time.
If you think you might like dancing, or know you love it and just need some encouragement to get out, come and join us!
FYI, although the name includes the word "swing", the dance does not involve traditional swing moves where one partner is being thrown into the air, nor is it bouncy like the dances it originated from. Dancers in the Edmonton community range from teens to late seniors and everything in between. It's a lot of fun and you can keep learning more moves for as long as you live!
To see some videos about West Coast Swing, you can go to YouTube (here's a nice one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAR27FWzyZY).

There's a great post about why West Coast Swing is so wonderful on the West Coast Swing Addicts Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/123484727669690/permalink/2419165788101561/.
Cost for the West Coast Swing Addict dances is $10.00. That includes a basic lesson and the dance. Bring clean indoor shoes with leather/smooth soles or you can dance in socks if you want/need to. We suggest you bring two pairs of socks if you go that route. We're happy to give you suggestions on what shoes to buy if you want.
