Transport yourself back to the wonderful big band era of the 1930s & 1940s by learning one of most popular dances of that period – the fabulous foxtrot! We’ll start by reviewing the basic footwork and foundations to this fluid and elegantly flowing dance, then quickly move on to some fun variations, as well as introduce how to effortlessly transition from one move to the next. Perfect for beg/int level dancers. Ideal to take in conjunction with the 8:15 p.m. West Coast Swing class to build your repertoire and dance skills. Level: Beg/Int. All welcome – no partner needed.
Intro to West Coast Swing

West Coast Swing is not only one of the smoothest, sexiest and funniest forms of swing dance on the scene today, but is hugely popular in Seattle, across the country, and growing strong. Using Ari’s very unique approach to understanding effortless partnered movement, you will not only quickly learn the foundations of WCS, but more importantly, you’ll come away with a much deeper understanding of the fundamental language of energy & flow in dance that can be applied to any style you do! Not to be missed! Ideal to take in conjunction with the 7 p.m. Fabulous Foxtrot class to help reinforce many of the concepts introduced there. Level: Beg/Int. All welcome – no partner needed.
