What a spectacular night! Not only did we have Andrew Oprychal up from Calgary for the lesson, but we also gave away two tickets to the Calgary Dance Stampede to the winners of our fun Jack and Jill dance contest (worth $175 each!) We had 20 couples enter, narrowed it down to 10 finalist couples and then winners were selected! Congratulations to Barb and Yan! Big thanks to our panel of judges, Sherry Tovell, Andrew Oprychal and Monika Holub!
Its the beginning of February and we’re in the middle of worst cold snap Edmonton has seen in a long time. But the WCS dancers showed up Friday night and made it warm and toasty inside! Corina and Kyle did a lesson on all things sugar-push. Round the clock on 3, or figure 4 on 3 for leads. Round the clock on 3, sweep on 3, and shaping to the side on 3 for follows. Let us know if you’d like to see more lessons like this, where we take a basic concept and add on some fun variations.
Thanks to our MeetUp team of Jaqueline and Megan for getting the word out, and getting a great turn out of new people!
See you at the next dance February 22!
Fun times at our Ugly Christmas Sweater Dance! Gabby and Vicky were the finalists in the sweater contest, with Gabby (to the right) coming out on top by audience cheers. Thanks to everyone who brought in treats to share (they were delicious!).
That’s Brian, Kim, Nadia and Vicky hamming it up above.
See you next year for more west coast swing!
