After a truly inspiring Midland Swing Open, and with a decent haul of trophies, our community is getting excited about the future WSDC events that we're going to attend. Here's our action-packed plan of events for the coming year.
These events offer world class teaching line-ups, official WSDC competitions and late-night socials packed with awesome dancers. We'd love as many people from our community to get involved as possible!
If you want to get involved, but you're nervous about attending such a big event, why not set Detonation in May as a goal and structure your practice in the meantime? It's a local event, and very welcoming - perfect for your first registry event.
SwingVitational - 14th November 2019, London
OK, SwingV is almost upon us - but it's not too late to get involved! The entire teaching line-up looks great, and we're particularly looking forward to seeing Jakub & Emeline again. We'll never forget the weekend workshop we attended with J'Em earlier this year, it was fascinating to gain an insight into their style and methodology.
Swing Resolution - 17th January 2020, Edinburgh
In January we're heading up to bonnie Scotland for Swing Resolution. We can't wait to learn with Deborah Szekely again, she's such an inspiring leader of the community. Such passion for West Coast Swing. If you haven't already, you should check out Deborah's podcast The Naked Truth on Spotify. And Deborah is just one of the many excellent teachers at Swing Resolution.
Detonation Dance - 23rd April 2020, Manchester
Pretty much our home event, Detonation is a firm favourite and well attended by our community. Only a little over an hour away from Leeds, Detonation Dance is an excellent choice for your first event - it's very beginner friendly. We've attended for the last three years - and simply wouldn't miss it! This could definitely be your jump off point into WSDC registry events.
D-Town Swing - 4th June 2020, Düsseldorf
We've never been to D-Town in Germany, but everything we've seen of the event looks properly exciting. They really seem to be innovating on the format with live bands, and the line-up of teachers is out of this world! The teachers include Jordan & Tatiana, Benji Schwimmer, Maxime & Torri, Kyle & Sarah, Maxence & Virginie, Ben & Victoria, PJ Turner & Tashina... Do we need to say anymore?!
Midland Swing Open - 24th September 2020, London
One of the longest running WSDC events in Europe, Midland Swing Open is an event attracting some excellent teachers and dancers. Run by the same team as Detonation, this is an event that you'll remember forever. We'll be adding more details as next year's event is fleshed out - I think Lee & Fab are still getting over the last one :)
If you want to join us, simply drop us a message and we'll add you to the relevant groups for each event. Worried about attending such a big event? No worries, we'll explain everything!
