Dance workshops: a full schedule of dance workshops with at least two hours tuition daily. These workshops will give you precious time with your teachers who will entertain and engage you with their humour, personality and excellent teaching technique. This is a unique opportunity to improve on all your general techniques as well as widen your West Coast Swing and Chilled room repertoire of moves. New or fairly new to the Coasting or Chilled out rooms ? Not a problem!. You’ll leave this holiday with a new found skill and confidence to take to any social dance floor. 

 

Venue for classes:  All the workshops will conveniently take place within the hotel.

We aim for all of our events to be gender balanced. We believe that gender balancing is an important feature of these events as it ensures maximum enjoyment for everyone. Where WCS is a lead follow dance there will be plenty to learn from a solo perspective to continue on your dance journey. Both men and women will have equal workshop and freestyle opportunities with your teachers over the course of your holiday.

We will strive to ensure a successful gender balance by creating appropriate promotions where necessary. 

 

The teacher will be the fantastic
