Pro Lesson Series

Amanda Derus

We're excited to continue our NEW pro lesson series with Amanda Derus. If you missed the last series, reminder that we have new registration options, new location, new times, and new lesson content and formatting. If you're proficient with WCS basics like side passes, basic whips, tuck turns, and sugar pushes, you're ready for these classes!

New registration policy: The club requires a minimum registration in order to be cost-effective. This means if there are not enough students pre-registered, the lesson series will not run. To that effort, we are offering pre-registration for this lesson series for a small discount. You can pre-register online or at any of our weekly dances.

Registration for this series is now closed. Stay tuned for future dates!
