About Us
Silvia & Max
We are passionate about West Coast Swing!

What we love so much about WCS is that it is a partner dance that can be danced to almost any kind of music of a certain tempo. There is smooth Jazz, Soul, R&B, Country and Western, Blues, contemporary music and current charts.

West Coast Swing is incredibly smooth and cool and it allows us to improvise and give our very personal expression to the music, either together or individually.

We started to offer weekly West Coast Swing class here in Winchester in January 2010 and our classes have been running ever since.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our weekly West Coast Swing Night on Thursdays in Winchester!
