Swing Dance Classes!

Have you ever watched people dance a cool sexy version of swing and wondered what it was? It was probably West Coast Swing. It has gained a huge popularity through-out the country.  It is so popular, that hundreds of conventions and contests are held around the country every year. West Coast Swing is a truly American dance. It started forming in the late 40's, after World War II, and has continued to evolve to the new dance form that it is today. It can be danced to a wide variety of music, including Blues, R&B, Jazz, Pop, and Country.

If you are interested in learning West Coast Swing, you have definitely come to the right place. Mark Harris is a U.S. Open Swing Dance Championships Award Winner, and an 8 time State Swing Dance Champion and was 1st in the Nation on the Masters Tour (Masters National Swing Dance Championships) for ten months during 2008!  

Mark has a vast background in dance. He was a Judging Coordinator for the Oklahoma/Kansas State Swing Dance Association, a former State Director of the NTA (National Teacher Association), and was a Co-Event Director of Dancin' Up A Storm For The Shrine Hospital For Children, and the Heartland Dance Festival & KC Swing Challenge. Mark was a featured dancer in the feature film, "Blog, The Movie."
