MCS Swing Seminar – October 13-14



MCS is excited to present a weekend of learning with champion West Coast Swing dancer and brilliant instructor, Brandi Guild!

Brandi is one of the best teachers in WCS, teaching intensives solo and with Robert Royston around the country and internationally. We are SOO excited to have her visit and work with our community in San Francisco. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity!

These workshops will be focused on concepts and techniques rather than patterns, offering material and insights for both roles. The All Levels Seminar will cover quality of movement, weight transfers, leg action, anchoring, connection, partnership, styling, and footwork. The Advanced/All Star Seminar will focus on competition strategies.

We will be limiting workshop attendance to ensure there is sufficient room for participants, so be sure to register in advance!
