16MAY17 – Why HD?

High Definition “definition”: high degree of detail

  • “I’ve been dancing west coast swing for a while and have learned more patterns than I actually use. I feel my technique could use some fine tuning”
  • “I’m new to West Coast Swing and still have so much to learn! I feel I can progress more quickly if I get proper coaching right off the start”.
  • “I’ve hit a plateau in my Leading/Following and am looking for a breakthrough.”
  • “I’m confused by the feedback I’m getting from my partners. What am I doing wrong? Right? Help!”

Shelley Saxena leads our small learner-centered High Definition classes, providing a high degree of detail and personal attention regardless of where you are on your WCS journey. Patterns are used to incorporate higher-level concepts and explore areas in the dance where technique intersects with pattern selection and styling options.
