What you'll learn in this swing class:

Students enrolled in this class will learn the unique dance that incorporates slinky, smooth and sexy moves to Soul, Blues and Contemporary music.

This class is known as the "Sophisticated Swing," West Coast Swing incorporates slinky, smooth and sexy moves to Soul, Blues and Contemporary music. This dance began in Blues clubs in the 1940's, originating from the Lindy Hop. Since then, each region has developed a style and name for this slotted Swing dance. Examples are: The Texas Push, Chicago Steppin, and D.C. Hand Dancing. Whatever they call it, the West Coast Swing is "the" Swing Dance for today's music and is hotter than ever.

Take this course for 3 cycles, and you are ready to move to the intermediate level.

Note: A dance partner is not required for this class.

Teacher: Kendall Pham

See Classes Taught by This Teacher »

Kendall began dancing ballet as a child and discovered partner dancing through the dance department at the University of Texas at Austin. She was very involved in the ballroom club on campus, Texas Ballroom, where she studied and taught the International and American styles. Soon, Kendall found her true love in country western partner dancing. She is drawn to its fun, expressive, and social nature. In Texas, Kendall competed successfully in country western couples and pro-am on the American Country Dance Association circuit. She currently competes in hustle and cabaret with Roberto Pagan, in west coast swing with Billy Marti (NASDE), and in line dance (UCWDC). Through her dance business, Aspiration Dance, Kendall regularly taught at many studios and events in Texas, Vermont, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. In addition to teaching partner dancing, she founded and directed the Aspiration Dance Ballet Company in Austin, Texas. She taught dance to elementary school kids in an after-school program in Austin, and she is a certified Core Rhythms Live fitness instructor. Kendall strongly values cross-training between dance styles. She emphasizes moving in informed, healthy ways, so she works to teach dance technique that is bio-mechanically optimal for each individual. She also focuses on lead/follow techniques that allow her students to be responsive to their partners on the social, performance, and competitive dance floors.

Attended: Argentine Tango - All Levels Technique

The class was amazing! Instructions were simple and detail oriented, so it was easy to follow. Definitely will come back!

Attended: Salsa 1 (on 2) - Bongo Loco

Would definitely recommend for beginners. The instructors were enthusiastic and kept a great pace. Very nice facilities with many other dance classes in session at the same time.

Attended: Beginner International Standard

Standard Foxtrot was fun, I took a date there and it was a very good idea and we both had a lot of fun. Initially I was signed up for beginning int'l standard but there was such bad traffic we didnt make it but Step Out studios let us do the very next class, which was said to be more difficult in the foxtrot. Our instructor was Tatyana and she was great, the class itself was several sessions in, they meet like 1x a week and they were probably 4-5 sessions in so that made it tougher to learn but it was still fun, my date and I both did our best to keep up and focus and we had fun with it and got better as the class went along. I would definitely recommend doing a dance class but focus on anything that says beginner, even if you are a person that goes out to dance at clubs etc, it will still be difficult to keep pace, particularly with a class that is already in session and deep into the progression. Had a lot of fun and would definitely do it again, just will choose a different class that can work at my pace.
