Beginner Lesson Series

Unfortunately, beginner lesson series are currently suspended, but we do have a beginner bootcamp coming up. Please check back soon for updates.


Are you new to West Coast Swing? Do you want to review the basics? Do you want to learn a new role? Then this is the class for you!

West Coast Swing is a fun, social dance that’s perfect for a wide range of music from artists like Ed Sheeran, Michael Jackson, Keb’ Mo’, Billie Eilish, Aretha Franklin, Charlie Puth, and Selena Gomez.

No previous dance experience is required, and you don’t need to register with a partner – we rotate during class.

You’ll learn basic 6- and 8-count moves, such as the sugar push, left and right side passes, tucks, and the basic whip – everything you need to get out on the dance floor.

To encourage you to try out your new moves, you’ll receive a punch card for 5 free weekly dances at the Brink – a $25 value!

The instructor for this series is now Sayeed Ahmed!
