West Coast Swing Continuing
West Coast Swing is a street partner dance taught exclusively in Canberra by Audacity Dance at the fantastic dance studio at Belconnen Arts Centre. No experience is necessary. Great social experience and fun-loving students, with all the teachers having undergone professional training in West Coast Swing and regularly updating their skills at interstate and international workshops. Come learn from the best! They have a reputation as one of Canberra’s top dance studios, providing quality and fun dance tuition. West Coast Swing is derived from Swing, but without the bounce of Lindy Hop, Ceroc or Ballroom Jive. It is a partner dance characterised by a distinctive “elastic” look, that results from its basic extension-compression technique of partner connection, and is best described as “smooth, sexy and…‘how you doin’?’”
You don’t need a partner to attend, as partners rotate during each lesson. Enjoy the opportunity to meet people in a safe environment and modern air-conditioned venue, with professional and energetic instructors guiding you. Please wear comfortable clothes and smooth-soled shoes to enable you to dance.
