2019 will see another fabulous line-up of champion WCS instructors from the US, Europe and the UK with a range of workshops to suit all skill levels.
Are you a lover of West Coast Swing, but feel you lack the fluidity of the pros? Do you want to improve your dancing skills, rhythm and technique with an exciting and fun weekend of West Coast Swing workshops and classes?
Jive Addiction's UK Westie Bootcamp is the perfect place to improve your dancing. No matter what level you come in at, you're sure to enjoy this entertaining weekend of social dances, in-depth workshops, and hints and tips from the pros of West Coast Swing.
The key word is 'enjoyment'. The weekend is designed to build your confidence, improve your dancing and provide an inclusive and friendly atmosphere so you 'enjoy' the journey!
The venue is welcoming and compact, with different rooms for classes, a Licensed bar and comfy chill out areas. Every accommodation has a Kitchen/Diner and all have bathrooms/showers. The weekend is self-catering and there is a very reasonably priced restaurant on site - open from 8am - 9pm each day, serving Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
You can make use of the newly refurbished Swimming Pool and Gym during the weekend located at the Yatch club (a few minutes walk from the main venue).
A PDF of the weekends schedule of classes and check-in details will be emailed out to Lead names 7 - 10 days prior to the event.
These especially planned Levels offer a unique opportunity to experience the highest level of instruction with a friendly and supportive group of a similar skill level. You will be expected to stay in the same Level throughout the weekend which will help to progress your social dancing.
We want EVERYONE to enjoy and get the most out of the workshops this weekend. This means being realistic and participating in the Level that is appropriate to your current level of WCS dance experience. If you happen to be struggling in a workshop, you may not be at the right level for your current experience.
West Coast Swing Classes will run throughout the weekend and a programme, check-in details and any other information you need will be emailed 7-10 days prior to the start of the Bootcamp.
This might be your first introduction to WCS or you may have taken a few WCS classes already but are not confident with the basics and still counting steps. You’ll be introduced to the basics and given all the tools you’ll need for a great start on your WCS journey.
You are already taking WCS lessons and although you have the basics sorted you need to gain confidence and take your dancing up a notch. You’ve probably been dancing for 12 months or less, but have been regularly attending classes and WCS social dances.
In this level you’ll learn new moves and hopefully build your confidence to help you along on your journey.
If you start off in this level but find it too challenging or feel the need to work on your basics, please join the Level One classes.
You have been dancing and attending WCS classes regularly and no longer need to count. You have a solid knowledge of the basics (sugar push, left side pass, right side underarm turn, tuck turn and whip).
You may have competed in Novice previously and want to take your WCS to the next level, learning new moves, shapes and variations. You need to work on your partnering skills, technique and timing, improving your social dancing.
It's expected that you regularly attend Intermediate level workshops/intensives and weekend WSC events. You social dance frequently, feel ready to introduce more complex patterns to your dancing and are ready to accelerate your learning.
Workshops will be fast paced working on connection, footwork, pattern structure, styling and musicality.
If you are having trouble keeping up with a class, please be fair to others in this level and drop down to Level 3.
This level is ONLY for experienced WSC dancers who have also probably competed at WSDC Registry events at INTERMEDIATE level or above and been placed - or - have been teaching WCS regularly at intermediate+ levels for more than 4 years.
These workshops will be fast paced and tailored to the needs of the more advanced dancers. Covering advanced concepts and techniques pushing you to your limits and exploring some of the most intricate and technical aspects of the dance with a few tips and tricks to help you stand out.
