This week we have the Legend himself, Paul Warden teaching the last two classes, Fiona Gardiner teaching the Beginners and we have the one and only Sarah Piddington aka Piddy DJIng for us on the last night of the year for WestCo’s. Back in 2018 🙂
Westco’s have been running weekly West Coast Swing classes for over 8 years now with various teachers. One of the originals, Paul Warden himself will be back with us to share his knowledge and passion for WCS.
Paul competes in the highest Champions level division in WCS both in UK and internationally. He has been instrumental in developing the dance in this country for over a decade and his students read like a ‘WCS Who’s Who!’
Paul competed from a young age in Linedancing. It is the precision of that technique and training along with his sheer determination that underpins his creativity as a dancer as well as his success as a teacher. He knows what it takes to improve and get better and understands the pitfalls along the way.
