West Coast Swing for Beginners


with Elizabeth Pouwels

Calendar Mar 3, 2019 at 5 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Want to learn a partner dance but don't know where to start? If you've never taken a dance class, this class is perfect for the beginner. West Coast Swing is a versatile, fun-filled partner dance that is compatible with a wide variety of music, which makes it a good first dance to learn. WCS allows for both partners to improvise steps while dancing together. Your instructor will offer a pace at the level of the class and provide support and encouragement as you learn how to have fun with your partner and the dance. Come alone or with a partner - singles are welcome! Those who have taken beginner before are encouraged to freshen up their skills and the instructor will modify basics to add more challenge for those who have a working knowledge of the dance. 

Elizabeth Pouwels teaches for various organizations including the Maine Swing Dance Council and the Ballroom Dance Society of Central Maine, and is a two-time winner of Dancing with the Ellsworth Stars.

David Koenka grew up in a family of dancers and takes great pleasure in learning and sharing all he can about dance.
