West coast swing courses in May

Weekly west coast swing courses continue in May!

TSS organizes two WCS courses that last for five weeks (2.5.-30.5.22). In between the courses there will be an hour long free practice. The Open level course is for anybody with west coast swing foundations (intermediate), while the Beginners+ course is targeted at those who attended this spring's Beginners course or know the basics of west coast swing. There will be rotation circles in the course, so coming without a partner is definitely possible. You can also dance only with your own partner if you wish. The free practice sessions are free for course participants and 3 € for others.

Coronavirus safety measures

Due to the existing coronavirus situation, special precautions are required to make organizing dance courses possible. TSS has outlined the following safety measures:

  • Pre-registration is required for all our courses and there won't be a free trial week this season.
  • We recommend participating in our courses with your own partner. However, you can also register without a partner.
  • Partners will be rotated in smaller rotation circles. You can always dance only with your own partner.
  • Participants need to be completely healthy when coming to the classes. If you are feeling even slightly unwell, don't come to the classes!
  • Participants are asked to follow good hand and coughing hygiene (hands are to be washed with soap or with disinfectant before and after the classes).
  • We recommend the (correct) use of face masks during the classes.
  • The disinfection of door handles etc. is increased.
  • Attention! We might have to limit the number of participants, if there is a lot of registrations.
  • The doors will open 15 minutes before the classes to avoid crowding at the entry.
  • If you get coronavirus, we hope that you will inform the teachers immediately, so we can notify anonymously others who have been exposed.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation!
