Welcome to the Edinburgh University West Coast Swing Society. Here you can learn more about West Coast Swing and sign up for classes.
West Coast Swing is a modern partner dance from California. Modern and stylish it can be danced to a wide variety of music making it the perfect style to dance out and about.
Classes are every Wednesday at 7-9pm in 48a Upper, Pleasance.
Don't worry if you don't have a partner as we rotate the class so everyone gets a chance to dance. All you need is a pair of comfortable shoes (trainers are not recommended as they tend to stick to the floor and will make things a bit harder). No experience is necessary as we start from the basics and build up from there.
Social events are a chance to practice the patterns you have learnt in class in an open and friendly environment. We will have a busy sechedual of social events around Edinburgh that are great for beginners to try out some social dancing and for experts to show their moves!
The best way to keep up with any informal West Coast events is to join our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/euwcsds
