Dance Events

You’ll have no problem getting your fill of social dancing from the Madison West Coast Swing Club with all we have to offer.

Currently our regular events are suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The information on these events remains below.  For now, check out our “Get Back into the Swing of Things” dances!

Our regular social dances are typically 2-3 hours long, and usually have a workshop class held immediately beforehand.  Weekly dances are held at a local nightclub/bar venue in downtown Madison every Wednesday evening and are very relaxed — a perfect creative and social outlet mid-week!  Monthly dances are held at a nearby dance or yoga studio on the second Saturday of every month and focus on a slightly more structured event, including one or more guest professional dance instructors.  Monthly dances are made a little more special by also offering snacks as well as holding special dances including a mixer and the month’s birthday “jam dance” — all making for a very fun Saturday evening event to look forward to every month.

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!

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.

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