Is what you do way different than 'what they do ? ... Beginning , Wednesdays , Club

Is everyone telling you what to do ... differently? ... We fixed them ... We can fix you too !.

     Beginning , Wednessays , Club Learning how to dance is like learning another language, except that this language is spoken with your body (and printed in music.) If you really don't know the correct 'Physical Language' it can be really hard to communicate with another person physically. Many teachers know the basic WCS language but Sonny helped write the book. These classes will help you learn that communication in a fun and relaxed enviroment. If your new and starting from scratch you may be confused at first but each week you will become better and better and suddenly your a proud "West Coast Swing dancer," ... all it takes is a smile, a willingness to try and to show up, we will take care of the rest. ... 234 ... 234 ... 234 ... 234 ... :)
