I have attended a couple of group lessons and I have tried to learn using online videos but without a dance partner that is only getting me so far. I would like to find more consistent group lessons or find private lessons with someone that really knows and loves West Coast Swing. Right now I am looking to building a firm foundation so that I can have fun and build on that foundation attending the monthly events that are pretty easy to find... but they are only monthly!…
