Strictly West Coast Swing

You choose your partner and we pick the music. Only 1 skill level is offered and open to all *. You may not enter the same level as both a leader and a follower. Couples dance in heats with multiple couples on the floor for 2 minutes to a song the DJ chooses for that division. Couples will receive 2 songs (1 fast/1 slow). Judges will evaluate the couples based on their demonstration of good social dancing skills, timing, technique connection, lead and follow, presentation and showmanship.
Non traditional gender roles or same sex couples are welcome in these contests.  
Novice and Intermediate Divisions

 

Pro-Am West Coast Swing

Students enter with a teacher. In the Pro-Am divisions only the amateur is evaluated. 5 skill levels are offered for both Leader and Follower roles. Each skill level and role is a separate contest. Pro-Am couples dance in heats with multiple couples on the floor at once for 1½ minutes of a song the DJ chooses for that division. Pro-Am’s will receive 2 songs (1 fast/1 slow) per division. Judges will evaluate the amateur based on their demonstration of good social dancing skills, timing, technique connection, lead and follow, presentation and showmanship.
Non traditional gender roles are welcome in these contests.

Jack n’ Jill West Coast Swing
PROUDLY SPONSORED BY WCS CALGARY


Jack n' Jill contests allow individuals to enter without a partner and demonstrate skills in spontaneous dancing with a variety of partners. Leaders and followers are randomly paired and there will be several partner changes during the preliminary and semi-final rounds. Competitors are scored individually on  timing, technique and teamwork in the preliminary heats. Those scoring the highest will be “called back” later to dance in a final round. In the final round, individuals are randomly paired, then scored as a couple. The DJ picks the music. Tempo and style will vary. 
Newcomer, Novice, Intermediate and All AmeriCanadian Divisions


All of your Jack n' Jill WCS Dance Entry Fees have been graciously donanted by WCSwing Calgary.
