West Coast Swing Rally choreography


It's time for the annual Rally practice, and this year it's being organized by two dance schools: Turku Swing Society and Dance Studio Centro! The venue will be the familiar Taimi 2 at Puutarhakatu 21.

What on earth is Rally? Every year, West Coast Swing dancers around the world learn the same choreography and perform it on the same day worldwide.
Here's an example of the 2020 performance: https://youtu.be/-VOjHp2W1zU and the 2021 performance: https://youtu.be/WDDai4wyT1I .
Thanks to the photographers and editors!

This year's performance day is Saturday, September 7. The performances (about 3 of them) have been on Saturday afternoons, after which we often go for coffee or a meal together. Participation in the performances is voluntary.

Here is the video of this year's choreography to be learned: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCw–kZXszg . This year's Rally will be learned over nine sessions. If you have completed the basics of West Coast Swing, you'll do well in these classes. There have sometimes been participants without prior knowledge of West Coast Swing, but it is recommended that you know the basics of West Coast Swing.

The practices will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from August 6 to September 5 (except NOT on the first Thursday, August 8). If you can only attend one day a week, that's fine. We will teach different sections on alternating weeks on different days, so you'll learn the choreography even if you can only attend on Thursdays.
You can still learn the Rally even if you start later or miss a few sessions.
There is no need to register for Rally training. Learning the choreography is a fun addition to the world of West Coast Swing.

If you don't want to participate in the performance but would still like to help out, we need photographers and promotional material distributors for the performances.

In addition to the Rally training, we have Kesäwestit (Summer open practice sessions) once a week after the Rally.

To cover the cost of venue rental, we charge a small admission fee: Summer package 30 € (includes all 9 Rally practices and 5 Summer WCS practices) or single practice payments 3€ for just the Rally, 4 € for the Rally and Summer WCS practices.

PRICE:
Summer package:
9 Rally sessions and 5 Summer West Coast Swing sessions / 30 €
Single Rally practice / 3 €
Rally and Summer WCS practices / 4 €

VENUE:
Taimi 2, Puutarhakatu 21,
20100 Turku

Payment options: MobilePay or cash.

Please note that the dance schools do not provide insurance for participants in the practice sessions.
