2019 schedule shown as an example of what the schedule includes:
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. Please respect and be fair to your fellow dancers. If you are 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 6 months or less, but have been regularly attending classes.
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 go back to Level One.
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 Newcomer or 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 events. You social dance frequently and feel ready to introduce more complex patterns to your dancing and are would like to accelerate your learning. Workshops will be fast paced working on connection, footwork, pattern structure and styling.
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 will be by audition. More info will be posted here asap.
These workshops will be fast paced and tailored to the needs of the more advanced dancer. 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.
Auditions: In a class style where you will be rotated. You will have a number of partners enabling you demonstrate your social dance skills. This is the most efficient and non-intimidating way for the instructors to evaluate each dancer’s skill level to ensure everyone will get the most from this course.
There are no maximum numbers to be selected in this group. You will be compared to other students auditioning. So although you might be the best dancer in your regular class – it’s possible you may not be the best compared to the audition group. Having said that, please don’t be disheartened if you don’t make it. Instead, choose to look at it differently and be inspired, giving you a goal to look forward to. Don’t take it as a blow to your ego.
