First class back for 2013
This Tuesday we’re kicking off our first WCS dance class for the year with a special deal…
Introduce someone new to WCS and you’ll both get in for half price
And with all our upper-level dancers on a high after the recent Best of the Best event with Jordan and Tatiana in Sydney, there’s never been a better time to be at West Coast Swing!
Ben is coming up especially to teach both classes and dance with everyone so make the most of the opportunity and come along for an pumping night of dancing and socialising.
Come and see why we’re sooooo excited about our new venue – it’s a free night of dancing for everyone, so bring your friends and get introduced to a new dimension of partner dancing!
And remember to join for a drink afterwards at The Monday Room.

Our next Intro to WCS Course starting on Tuesday 19 June will mark the first night at our new venue, Salsa Lataina, on 12 Bath St on the south side of the Christchurch CBD. Click here for a map.
We’ll be in studio 3 every Tuesday from the 19th on. We’re currently reviewing our class times and would love your input on what class times would suit you best.

Ben is back from Swingvitation and it’s time to party!
Get your dancing shoes on and head along to 101 Mackworth St this Saturday, 12 May, at 7.30pm for your fix of social dancing at Alicia’s Loft. BYO drinks and nibbles plus a donation for the kind use of the Loft.
Remember to make friends with those people going to Swingsation next weekend so you can get all the latest tips off them when they return!
To see how awesome Swingvitation was in Singapore with Jordan and Tatiana, head to YouTube and search for “Swingvitation”
Ben & Mandi have just got back from an awesome weekend in Sydney with West Coast Swing legends Jordan Frisbee & Tatiana Mollmann at Nuroc’s Best of the Best…..and they bought a bit of extra luggage home with them after taking out Second Place in the Novice Strictly Swing division!
As well as learning lots in the workshops & having so much fun with hours of social dancing, we also got to see Jordan & Tatiana perform their epic routine (currently featured on our home page) live and it was TOTALLY MINDBLOWING.
They’re amped about seeing you all at our NEW VENUE Club Havana tomorrow night to celebrate SwingSouth’s first night in a new home with a FREE CLASS for everyone! So bring some friends with you
Where: Club Havana, 52 Princess St, Riccarton. Find a map and street views of the venue HERE. Can’t wait to see you all there!
Ben & Mandi are pleased to announce that from Tuesday 31st January all SwingSouth WCS classes and events will be held at our fantastic new venue, Club Havana! Classes will still be on every Tuesday from 7:30pm but will now be held in an actual dance studio – complete with mirrors, fans and a water cooler (perfect for the sticky summer nights we’ve been having recently!).
You can find Club Havana @ 52 Princess St, Riccarton – upstairs in the big BLUE Thorpe Engineering building. Tower Junction and Westfield Riccarton are very close by – great for socialising over dinner or drinks before, or after class. There is also plenty of parking on the street in front of the studio.
NB: the Google maps marker for 52 Princess St isn’t accurately placed (yet) – we are in the process of getting this updated! But in the meantime…. don’t let technology fool you
Can’t wait to have you with us to try out the new venue NEXT WEEK!
