TOWestCoast (pronounced “Tee-Oh West Coast”) was established in 2001 for the development and encouragement of West Coast Swing dancing in Toronto through weekly lessons, dances and community events. 

Only West Coast Swing.

West Coast Swing is a fun and flirty dance done to a wide variety of music: Pop, Soul, R&B, Blues and Hip-Hop. There’s great freedom for personal expression, and we have one of the friendliest dance communities in Toronto.

Classes take place on Tuesday nights at the Dovercourt House and always include a FREE weekly dance that attracts the best West Coast Swing dancers in the city.  Everyone is welcome – no partner necessary – and the Beginners class “bleeds” into the dance, so from the very first day you’re dancing with more experienced dancers, making new friends, and becoming part of a fun and dynamic dance community. Please see the Classes page for full details.

**FREE** Beginner Lessons the First Tuesday of Every Month – from 8:00-9:00 p.m.   This is a “free sample” – an introduction to West Coast Swing and who we are. If you like it, you’ll sign up for a WCS Fundamentals series to get a solid foundation in the Basics.

There are West Coast Swing workshops, dances, and events taking place in and around Toronto – opportunities to expand your knowledge, put what you’ve learned into practice, and even enter the competitive arena if that interests you. Please see the latest GroovyBluesyJazzyFunky newsletters (on the Home Page) for the most up-to-date information on upcoming events, and/or the Calendar.
