That makes it so that you can attend any lesson whether or not you've made it to other lessons. You'll want to attend as many of the lessons as possible, but none of the lessons require prior experience.

Spotlight Night: Pick your partner and can make song suggestions. Dance out in the middle of the jam circle for approx 1 min and show off the moves you've been practicing!

  

Over the last few months, more and more of my students and friends have been coming to Thirsty's to dance! If you've been to Thirsty's anytime in the last few months, I'm sure that you've seen them out on the dance floor. And without any cover or cost, now is your chance to learn our preferred style of couples dancing, West Coast Swing!

This is our 3rd year participating in the International Flashmob. This year, they are calling it a "Rally" though all the details are the same.

Every year, Tristan K-Choz and other French West Coast Swing pros put together choreography for the whole world to learn and dance.

 

Last year had 246 Cities in 41 different countries participate!

Typically, the whole world performs the choreo on the same day and this year that date is on Sept 1st (though we often perform it on more than one day). We've had an AMAZING time doing the flashmob over the last few years and this year will be no exception!

Last year, Lake Metroparks provided taco salad (which was surprisingly enjoyable and filling), concession snacks, and drinks. The year before they provided pizza, concession snacks, and drinks. If you have any special dietary restrictions, you may want to plan to bring something or order food to be picked up or delivered for the dinner break.

Wear comfortable clothes. No black hard-soled shoes. If you do not have suede-bottom dance shoes or really smooth-bottomed tennis shoes, bring an extra pair of socks!

We always have a great time with our Beginner Bootcamps where we cover a month worth of information within one day! West Coast Swing has many different basic patterns, which can make it challenging to learn. However, having all the basics for WCS in one day makes the dance easier to learn in a weekly lesson. Even for those that have learned WCS, covering the basics over again is something that all dancers of every level find to be rewarding. You're guaranteed to learn something new and have a great time.

We will cover:
Basic Connection
Left Side Pass
Right Side Pass
Inside Turns
Outside Turns
Starter Step
8 count Whip
Basket Whip
Traveling turns
Sugar Push
Freestyle-improv ideas


If you have any questions, feel free to call Lake Metroparks at (440) 358-7275
or you can contact Corey via the "contact" section on this website.
