Steve and Lara have multiple opportunities every week to learn to dance, meet new people, get moving, and have a great time. Check out all our lessons and dances in the DC area.

You don't need a partner to attend any of our events. We rotate partners during the lessons, and our dances are beginner friendly where everyone dances with everybody.

What is West Coast Swing (the latest dance craze around the world)

West Coast Swing (aka WCS) is one of the nation's most amazing partner dances because it is fun, challenging, and versatile. It can be danced to an incredible variety of music-popular, rock, R&B, jazz, blues, country, hip hop, zydeco, disco, oldies, Latin, basically any music that uses a 4/4 time signature. The greatest part of this dance is that is for all ages from ages 4-100+ and appeases the likes of all those generations because of its music and style versatility.  WCS can be performed simply and easily with a few basic patterns; or it can be embellished with an extensive repertoire of patterns and footwork variations. It is one of the few partner dances that allows for a great degree of experience between the dancers. The structure is such that an accomplished dancer can enjoy him or herself with a beginner and that makes for a very friendly dance environment.
