Bellingham West Coast Swing

Welcome to the informal (and quick-loading) website of an informal group dedicated to practicing and promoting WCS dancing in the contemporary-style in the northern Puget Sound as a fun social dance for leaders and followers.

We have a WCS dance and practice on Tuesdays from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM. The dances take place at the VFW Hall, Post 1585, at 625 N State St in Bellingham. See directions . Parking is available at the two lots just north of the hall.
Our social dances request a donation of 5 dollars (free to VFW members). All proceeds go to WCS expenses. Weekly information is sent out to our email list. Contact edohamiran at yahoo dot com to be added to this list. If you are new to west coast swing and want basic instruction, ask one of the organizers.
We have lessons for beginners at 6:15 p.m., before the dance, on some Tuesdays. Please let us know if you are interested.

Special Events in Our Area:

On Tuesdays in February and March (2016) meet some of our local west coast swing dancers and participate in an introductory lesson . You are then invited to stay for our social dance. The lessons will be independent of one another, so come when you can. We ask for a 5 dollar donation to our WCS group's expenses.

The introductory lessons will take place at the VFW hall, at 625 North State Street, in Bellingham (see the link to directions above). We'll start at 6:15 p.m. and you are invited to join our social dance which will follow the lesson from 7 to 9:30.
