Jen and Alpha Swing into Edmonton - Nov 1 - 3

Special Weekend Workshop with West Coast Swing pro’s from Vancouver! Hours of workshops and two social dances! 

Come out and experience the magic of
West Coast Swing dancing in Edmonton!

West Coast Swing is a fun, casual partner dance done to pop, club or blues music. It can be done fast or slow, and there are great opportunities for improvisation and working with the music.

First Timer, Beginner Tips:

  • Shoes: Wear something comfortable to move in. Avoid too high a heel, or heavy rubber soles.
  • Dress: Casual, comfortable. You’ll be moving a lot!
  • Lesson: Will be for beginners just like you. Most people will rotate and switch partners
    throughout the lesson. Great way to meet everyone!
  • Partner: Not required, but bring ’em if you’ve got ’em.
