Tromsø - the city where the Northern Lights dance
West Coast Swing
NLS 3 edition
January 21.-24. January 2021 we once again invite you to a wonderful workshop weekend for West Coast Swing lovers with international instructors in the northern lights city of Tromsø. The previous editions of NLS was a success and we are expanding the offer by inviting even more international instructors and increasing the number of levels.
In order for more people to be challenged, we divide the course hours in several levels. There will be good opportunities to get to know new and old dancers, practice what you have learned or just dance socially, as we add up to a total of 10+ hours of social dancing during the weekend.
- Level 1 (Project Swing/Beginner): Are you a beginner? Try our free introduction course for 4 hours with local instructors on Thursday and Friday evening to learn the basics of WCS.
- Level 2 (Newcomer): You have completed at least one beginner course and know the WCS basics and some basic variations. You want to improve your technique and add more variations to your dance. You have been doing some social dancing, and you want to learn more about technique and musicality.
- Level 3 (Novice): You have participated in several beginner and improver workshops and feel comfortable with the basic patterns and the most common variations. You can social dance to slow, medium and fast music and feel ready to explore technique that is more advanced, complex variations and musicality
- Level 4 (Intermediate): You have danced WCS regularly for 2-3 years and been travelling to several WCS events. You are comfortable with pattern variations and with rhythm variations. You work on placing your patterns in the music and finding your style in the dance. You take instructions easily and social dance frequently. If you compete you probably have WSDC points.
We will also this time have a fun competition.
It will be judged by our instructors.
