Bellingham West Coast Swing

Welcome to the informal 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.

During May and the summer of 2015 we will have social dances on Tuesdays. Workshops will resume in the fall, depending on interest and the availability of instructors.
Our social dances are 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.
