2 P.M. Class covers ten basic steps perfect for beginners.  It is also perfect for seasoned dancers needing to clean up their basic lead and follow.  It is these ten basic moves from which multiple intermediate moves develop; therefore, they are most important in West Coast Swing.

A first time student does not need to know what was taught the week before.  This makes class especially comfortable if you need to miss an occasional Sunday.  It is suggested Beginning students repeat the five-week series approximately three times.

The Ten Basic Steps are a prerequisite to Debbie's Intermediate class.
Ten Basic Steps include:  4 specific Whips, 3 Passes, 1 Push,  1 Starter Step and a Tuck-send out.    See the complete list of Ten Basic Steps below.

3 P.M. Class covers a diverse arrangement of dance patterns.
Each Sunday, low intermediate patterns are introduced.  As the entire class masters the pattern, a higher level of the same pattern is introduced.   Over five weeks of practice, patterns continue to develop into strong Intermediate patterns with multiple exit options.
Each Intermediate pattern relates to the Ten Basic steps.


4 P.M. Styling Class introduces styling footwork and "shine-steps" on the dance floor.

It is essential you know the rhythm of WCS before attempting to stylize the Basics.

Syncopated timing steps, splits, slides, body rolls, turns, ronde's, single-leg spins, shoulder rhythms, jazz holds, etc. are ways to make this fabulous dance even more fun.  This class answers the how-to's and where-to-do-it-in-the-dance dilemma.

Personal styling is developed and encouraged.
