Burlington Westie is an awesome dance community in Burlington Vermont focused on West Coast Swing and Fusion. We welcome and support all dancers, regardless of their age, race, gender, sexual orientation, or skill level. Our classes are held on Tuesday evenings, and taught by a team of instructors including Scott Chilstedt, Bridget Fischer, Ryan Doyle, Alison Nihart, and Adam Franco.
West Coast Swing is a modern lead follow social dance that evolved from Lindy Hop, and continues to evolve to match the contemporary music of each decade. During its evolution, West Coast Swing has been influenced by Ballroom, Hustle, Country Western, Ballet, Lyrical, Hip Hop, Zouk and more, and combines the best techniques from each into one sexy, smooth, and sophisticated partner dance.
Partner dancing is difficult. Much like playing an instrument, the basics can be learned in a few hours, but it takes months to internalize them and years to become a master. The good news is that learning process is fun, the people in our community are wonderful, and you can have enjoyable social dances after your first few classes.
