Step-by-Step (2015 dates!)

West Coast Swing, Step-by-Step is the instructional series developed specifically to provide the Seattle dance community with a step-by-step curriculum for West Coast Swing dancing.

These classes will give you an introduction to partnering, technique and the foundational patters of West Coast Swing. Four levels of classes are offered throughout the year by the area’s most qualified and accomplished professional instructors; Lynn Gross, Jim Minty, Katie Schneider, and Nancy Clark. At all levels, this series is perfect for the beginning dancer and also the more experienced dancer needing a brush-up on the basics.

If you have any questions about the Step-by-Step class please contact Karen Villamarin at karen@seattlewcswing.org
