Dance Events

Currently our regular events look a little different due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Our monthly social dances are typically held on a Saturday night, are 2-3 hours long, and usually have a workshop class held immediately beforehand.  New this year, we are also offering members-only weeknight social dances. Both types of events are hosted at the Madison Youth Arts Center in downtown Madison. For the most up-to-date news on events, join our mailing list.

If you’re new to dancing or West Coast Swing in particular, don’t be overwhelmed — come out to our beginner series or a “crash course” at our monthly dance, and in no time you’ll be ready to join us out on the social dance floor.  West Coast Swing dancers are known for dancing socially with people of all levels and abilities, so we know you’ll be welcomed and find your groove.

A few times per year, MWCSC puts together a workshop day or weekend, which turns our typical monthly dance into an even more exciting and memorable event, with more workshops and more fellow dancers.  Finally, MWCSC encourages all our dancers to attend an occasional regional or national dance convention, where there are non-stop workshops, competitions, and social dancing for 3-4 days… and hundreds of fun people to meet and dance with!

No matter your level or your dance goals, you have plenty of opportunity to dance with the Madison West Coast Swing Club.
