West Coast Swing Events (International)
Our own event listings page will soon be back, better than ever. You will soon be able to add your own West Coast Swing dance events to our very own community calendar.
In the meantime, here is some info and links to fantastic WCS events around the globe.
World Swing Dance Council – WSDC Events
The main competition organization governing the largest west coast swing event weekends is the WSDC. If you are looking to compete in a Jack and Jill, Strictly Swing, Pro Am, Rising Star or Open divisions this is where you wanna be. These weekends combine workshops from top professionals, a wide range of competitions as well as lots and lots of late night social dancing. Some events are more “hard core” than others but there is definitely something for everyone here.
National Association of Swing Dance Events
NASDE as its often called is a tour of 12 of the WSDC events. Theses events have a high standard as well as special prize money for the winners of the tour. They sponsor all of the main west coast swing competition divisions to preserve, and improve swing dancing. They strive to provide a competitive environment across the nation to include the Carolina Shag, Dallas Push, East Coast Swing, Hand Dancing, Houston Whip, Imperial Swing, and West Coast Swing. Again these events all have great workshops, social dancing and a high caliber of dancers!
