$5 Practice Wed, Floor time Friday, Haysboro

Another great week for WCS in Calgary.  Wednesday there is the $5 Guided Practice from 7:00 – 9:00 pm at DancEnergy.  This week we will be reviewing the Starter Step!  And of course we’ll share a bunch of other great information.

Friday we have something new to offer – 
The Haysboro dance floor is available for the hour before all Friday WCS Calgary dances!!! 
October till June – 7:15 to 8:30.
To secure this space for the season we need a minimum of 20 people signed up/paid up at $60 by Sept 25 (cash). This makes you a Member of the  FloorTime Fridays Group. You can use the floor and time for WHATEVER you like: (okay there are limits – no streaking – but it does not HAVE to be WCS)
Champions in all sports practice until they CAN’T do it WRONG.  One extra hour per week will improve your skills and your fun!!
The possibilities are endless:
  • solo practice – skills, drills, routines, footwork, etc. (ex. Andrew’s teaching a Technique class each Monday with lots of drills)
  • with a partner you bring/arrange to meet – partnering skills (i.e. partner drills like the ones at Bameo or from Wednesday practices, etc)
  • for couples/team/group/ProAm routines – i.e. routines for Calgary Dance Stampede 2016, Tango, Country
  • or work off instructional videos that you bring – I have DVDs I can share if you bring your laptop
  • or work in front of the mirrors – rhythm variations, lines, dynamics, styling, etc
  • and, as a group we can decide if we want to have ‘special’ themed evenings.
Membership has it’s privileges! An average of about $2/hour for practice time!!!  Throughout the season there may be unique benefits offered to you, such as bring a friend for free days, subsidized discounts at dance parties, special events, etc.
If more than 20 sign up, a rebate may be coming back to you after the rent has been paid.
The WCS Calgary dance afterwards is still only $7 for everyone…

7:15 – 8:30 Practice space offered by WCSwing Calgary

Last season we hosted a WCS group class before the weekly dance and it was a great success. I want to thank all the teachers that took the time to come out and share their knowledge. YOU ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED

This season WCSwing Calgary is trying to fill another need in the community. Do YOU have a space to practice? We take lessons, watch DVDs and videos but to get the information to ‘stick’ we need to review it. We are offering you a cheap space to use for practice. It doesn’t have to be WCS….it can be any dance, drills, partnered dancing, etc. We will share the music. Once we have secured the space we can also get creative and see what other opportunities present themselves.

2015-16 Season’s Pass for Floor Time Fridays 7:15 – 8:30 : (Sept to mid June)
The cost will be based on the number of people that sign up. i.e. if 20 people sign up it will cost $60/person for the season which is $2 per evening. The more who join us, the lower the cost for everyone! The typical rental rate at a studio in town is between $9 – $15 per practice. Most of us need a commitment to motivate us off the couch…….
This offer closes at the end of Sept.

Come out Sept 11 for a FREE Floor Time.

Regular dance starts at 8:30 for $7. Flash Mob at 10:00
