Description:

After more than a decade of dancing on Fridays at Cherry Hill Park the move to Hollywood Ballroom has brought DC area dancers lots more floor space, socializing areas, expanded hours and a beer/wine license. We are looking forward to many more years of WCS fun on Friday nights!

WHAT - West Coast Swing is one of today’s most fun, exciting, versatile, contemporary social dances. It'sloads of fun that anyone can enjoy. Fridays offer friendly, casual, group classes where all ages are welcome. No partner or experience is required. All you need is a desire to have some fun, meet friendly people and learn a new social skill. Beginner classes are taught as a progressive month long series which begin every 1st Friday of the month. The beyond basics classes offer dancers with some experience a chance to learn more complex patterns, styling and techniques. The party that follows the classes has been going weekly for years. It's become legendary for attracting 200+ friendly dancers from near and far. All ages and skill levels are welcome. There is a well stocked snack bar with fresh fruit, veggies, desserts and more. Sodas & Snacks are free. There are tables in the ballroom for taking a break or mingling. This venue has lots of socializing space beyond the dancing areas. Many of the dancers we see on Fridays are long time regulars that have been dancing with us for 10+ years.

WHEN - Dances are scheduled EVERY Friday except for dates when we close in support of 3 annual all weekend events. These closings and other special Friday night events are listed below.

Description:

DCSX 2014 returns to the Dulles Hyatt where it has been held since 2012. We have an even more talented staff contracted and 40 hours of workshops planned. New this year is the 3hr Robert & Nicola Royston intensive. Jack & Jill finals will be presented "spotlight" style for all divisions. Newcomer and Novice will dance in small heats. The Saturday night show will be top notch.

The 1st annual DCSX weekend was held at Hyatt Regency in Reston Virgina's Town Center. Thursday night began with a West Coast Swing workshop and the party that followed attracted over 200 dancers many of which danced into the wee hours. In total over 750 dancers attended the weekend. This turnout immediately established the event one of the largest of it's kind. Three adjacent ballrooms hosted a total of 40 daytime workshops and social dancing all night. Each room had a different swing style. Lindy Hop, West Coast Swing and Carolina Shag. West Coast Swing was by far the largest. Contests all took place in the largest ballroom which was spectacularly lit and decorated in the weekend's red color theme. Saturday night guests were awed by amazing performances in the superstar show. These routines were presented by the teaching staff, many of whom are current world and national champions. There were also Strictly Swing and Jack & Jill contests with multiple levels offered so anyone could participate. Jack & Jill contests all had elimination rounds or "prelims" preceding a final round. For the first time ever all of these final rounds were danced in "spotlight" format meaning each couple danced briefly on their own rather than in a group or "heat". This was wildly popular so it has become an integral feature of DCSX. Also especially popular that first year was the swing team division which featured nine groups dancing choreography in costume. The fun concluded with an overnight Sunday farewell party.

For over a dozen years Dance Jam Productions has earned a solid reputation for producing high quality, fun dance events of all kinds. This particular weekend began over 20 years ago as Craig Hutchinson's Virginia State Open Swing Dance Championships "VSO". In 2005 Barry Durand assumed ownership and presented VSO from 2005-2010. In 2010 Barry left for the west coast and left Dave Moldover's Dance Jam Productions in charge. It was decided a name change was in order and new resources and talent have been recruited to expand and improve on the existing foundation.
