WCS Musicality Guest Workshop & Warm-up Dance: October 28 & 29

We're so excited to be bringing a guest instructor to Ottawa for a special workshop on West Coast Swing Musicality!! Early-bird pricing ends October 22.

The event includes a Friday night workshop & warm-up dance, 4 hours of workshops & 1.5 hours of coached practice on Saturday afternoon.

When Maria discovered that her partner in a recent All-Star Jack & Jill competition, PJ Fritzler, had degrees and a career in music and music education, she started brainstorming with him about how to create a musicality workshop for WCS dancers. The result is a collaboration that brings together the "Yin and Yang" of musicality.

Guests from out of town will be joining us - let's show them Ottawa's awesome hospitality!
