Beginner Lesson Series

Are you new to West Coast Swing, or do you want to review the basics or learn a new role?

This is the class for you!

West Coast Swing is a fun, social dance that's perfect for a wide range of music from artists like Ed Sheeran, Michael Jackson, Roomful of Blues, Fifth Harmony, Charlie Wilson, Jason Derulo, and Selena Gomez.

No previous dance experience is required, and you don't need to register with a partner - we rotate during class.

You'll learn basic 6- and 8-count moves, such as the sugar push, left and right side passes, tucks, and the basic whip - everything you need to get out on the dance floor.

To encourage you to try out your new moves, you'll receive a punch card for 5 free weekly dances at the Brink - a $25 value!
