Continuing Lesson Series

Classes start 10/3 – Sign up today!

Now on Thursday nights!

We’re excited to announce our next Continuing Lesson Series with Doug Rousar! 

In Doug’s ~2 decades of professional West Coast Swing experience, he has won numerous awards including the US Open Swing Championships as well as the social dancer award in Oslo Norway.

Doug has certifications in teaching and judging and has also studied music education. He believes in quality instruction that encourages growth through technique, mixed with fun and playful exploration of the dance and your own personal style.

Having trained as both a leader and a follower, Doug brings valuable info, insight and experience for both sides of the connection. Most importantly, he strives to make class fun. If it’s not fun, it’s not worth it!

If you’re proficient with WCS basics (whips, passes, pushes, turns) and some of their variations, you’re ready for these classes.
