In the interests of everyone participating in our dance event, we require you to take a Rapid Antigen Test (Lateral Flow Test) within a few hours of your anticipated arrival at our event check in reception desk in the hotel bar. After you have taken the Test, please take a full face selfie of yourself clearly showing a negative result next to your face. This image should also clearly demonstrate the time and date the test was taken. You will be required to produce this proof of a negative result to our reception staff as a condition of admission to the event.

We strongly recommend also that you obtain a FREE Lateral Flow Test pack from your local pharmacy and bring it with you to the event. This will enable you to self-test yourself periodically during the weekend. 

If you feel unwell or test positive before the event, then you should not attend and follow medical advice accordingly.

This is a dance event and there will be a considerable amount of hand-to-hand contact. PLEASE wash your hands frequently and each time before dancing with a new partner PLEASE ensure you use antibacterial hand gel to cleanse your hands. Hand Hygiene Gel will be located throughout the Hotel and our functions rooms; however, it is also advisable that you bring your own when attending classes or social dancing.

Our aim is to provide a wonderful dance weekend in as safe an environment as possible. We have limited the number of attendees and will maximise airflow where possible in our dance rooms.

Teachers & DJs

Browly & Inga Kurciša

Browly needs little introduction as he has taught WCS at many of our events and many other events internationally. He is a prolific social dancer and a superb teacher.

Browly fell in love with WCS in 2010 and began his new adventure, traveling throughout Europe taking workshops and intensive courses with some of the best known and most respected teachers of this dance.

Today, Browly is best known for his clear and logical technique classes, and students love how he approaches musical interpretation in the dance. Passing on technique in a simple, efficient way, but also his strong values of respect for partners and enjoyment of the dance.

Breaking down  “complicated concepts” into simple ideas with fun exercises makes it easier for students to communicate in the dance. 

Inga is from Latvia and has danced from the age of 6. She was introduced to WCS around the age of 22 whilst dancing Line. She has studied hip-hop, classical dance, contemporary and jazz as well as Latvian folk dance and for the last 4 years she has worked with children from ages 4 to 18 in one of the biggest children folk dance companys in Latvia.
