West Coast Swing classes
New format for 2023
Our new format is designed help our new dancers have access to the practice party. The beginner dancers get so excited about learning to dance they want more after those first few classes. We feel the practice party is the right place for our new dancers to build their skill and practice their basics. It is also designed to help the intermediate class be a truly intermediate level class. Dance Boulevard will be working hard to promote our beginner classes and help the beginner dancers build a strong foundation before that jump into intermediate classes.
Thank you in advance for supporting Dance Boulevard and our efforts to be a great dance studio.

Etiquette for West Coast Swing
Socially, it is considered good etiquette (particularly on a crowded floor) to use a fixed slot, in order to allow dancing without incident. Having danced the slot repeatedly, the couple “has a claim” on the area, and other couples usually cooperate and establish their own slot parallel with the dancers. If the dance floor is not crowded and the couple is afforded more space, such as during a competitive event, the dancers may move the slot around the floor more liberally.
