Monthly Exeter WCS Workshop & Tea Dance

with

Top UK WCS Pro Catriona Wiles

 

13:00-18:00 Sunday 12 November

 

If you’ve been toying with the idea of learning WCS, then now is the perfect time to start! Or if you’ve been dancing WCS for a while and would like to refresh your basics and perfect your technique, then this is also a great opportunity for you to get back into the “swing” of things!

 

Every month, Catriona teaches a 3 hour FUNdamental/Improver level workshop, the first hour of which covers all the tools and techniques needed to get you started on your WCS journey.

 

After a short break, the next 2 hours focus on concepts and patterns to help you progress your understanding and experience of WCS.

 

And we’ll once again be offering a FUNdamentals review class with GPDIA (Global Professional Dance Instructors’ Association) newly qualified Sally Fullwood for our newer dancers wishing to consolidate their basics in a more one-on-one setting.

 

The afternoon is topped off with 90 minutes of pure WCS freestyle and practice time from 16:30-18:00! All will be made welcome!
