Waterloo Westies workshops and dance

November 4, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

Come join us on Saturday, November 4th for another night of West Coast Swing dancing in Waterloo!

West Coast Swing is an urban, smooth, and modern style of swing dancing. It encourages personal expression of the music and is danced to a variety of music, including Top 40, R&B, Pop, Blues, and more! A must try dance!

The Waterloo Westies is very excited that Shelley Saxena will be teaching the lessons before the dance on November 4th, 2017. She will also be providing two workshops in the afternoon to add to the basics of your West Coast Swing dancing. Come learn from one of Toronto’s best dancers and West Coast Swing teachers! We are so excited to have her back. Can’t wait to see you there.

Shelley’s ultimate passion is dance and she got a minor degree in dance at University of Calgary. She has been dancing West Coast Swing for 18 years. She teaches group and private lessons as well as competes mainly in the US. She recently achieved her All Star level.
