THE WESTERN & SWING WEEK PHILOSOPHY
We provide classes in both music and dance, so that dancers will have the finest music to dance to and musicians will be inspired by the great dance forms that their music is rooted in. Participants can tailor their own schedule to focus exclusively on music, dance or a mix of both. It's not uncommon to find an experienced dancer taking a beginning music class or an experienced musician learning to dance for the first time.
