This workshop is NOT for beginner dancers.
If you have never partner danced before, or you are in your first few months of partner dancing, we recommend taking classes here: SwingSoul Beginners

We're crossover specialists!

Between us we have trained in over 60 dance styles, but West Coast Swing is by far our favourite.

Myles has a classical dance background, training since age 8 in all the stage dances. He also started his partner dance career in Country Western, then moved into Latin & Ballroom, Salsa, and all the vintage Swing dances. Tessa trained as a teacher for Latin/Ballroom, Salsa, Hustle, and LindyHop before she discovered WCS.

Together we enjoy crossing over to social dance in any style, and we LOVE teaching experienced dancers to crossover too!

You don't have to get rid of your hard-earned technique
from your other dance styles. 

Let us show you how you can modify it
and leverage it to your advantage!
