Charlotte Westies Presents Wednesday Nights at The Bearded Buffalo in Belmont

Wednesday nights at The Bearded Buffalo is ABOUT HAVING FUN! It’s a great opportunity for dancers at all levels to learn from, and dance with, some of the top dance professionals worldwide, including West Coast Swing Champions Patty Vo, Jason & Annmarie Marker, Michael Kiehm, and other WCS Champions and All-Stars. Couples and singles are welcome, and no prior dance experience is necessary.

Each week features a 30-minute warm-up session, followed by two, one-hour classes that run at the same time. The Level 1 class is designed to teach beginner dancers the fundamental patterns of West Coast Swing. The Level 2+3 class is for more experienced dancers. The social dance after the lessons is for all levels. For experienced dancers the social dance provides an opportunity to dance with top-level pros and other local WCS dancers. For beginners, seasoned dancers can help you catch on quicker.
