Who are we ?
The Brussels West Coast Swing non-profit association was founded in 2013 by a group of four passionate dancers to make the dance known in Brussels and develop the WCS community.
During 5 years rich in experiences, they managed to contaminate others with the WCS virus
They did it so well that in May 2018, 5 of their former students (Andreia, Christophe, Didier, Julie and Thierry) decided to take up the torch and continue this magnificent adventure.
The team has grown and developed over time, but the goal remains the same: spreading the love for WCS.
For this new season, the team that manages the association consists of – Anna, Christophe, Didier, Erwin and Thierry, supported by Andreia, Julien, Julie, Dewi and Camille – and they will cater for your every (dancing) need.

Our aspiration ?
Introducing as many people as possible to this dance and enabling them to enjoy it as much as we do.
Promoting WCS in and around Brussels and finding collaboration opportunities with other WCS studios in Belgium and abroad as well as with other dance clubs.
We are not professional dancers – we have day jobs and volunteer for Brussels West Coast Swing in our spare time – but we constantly try to grow and improve by attending WCS festivals abroad, by taking private classes with the world’s best WCS teachers and by competing. We are also committed to providing the best learning environment possible and are in the process of obtaining an internationally recognized certification for our teachers. On top of weekly classes and regular workshops and socials, we organise team-building activities for our students and a yearly international event attracting Westies from all around Europe: BRUSSELiN’ Swing! The next edition is provisionally scheduled for the weekend of May 1, 2021
The brand new team and their passion for WCS
WCS also offers competition on a well-organized, worldwide scale, to mark your progress and earn official WSDC points. But most of all it offers a fantastic and cosy dance community with a lot of new friends that share the same WCS passion! »
