Pauline & Patric - WestCo's
Organisers & Community Builders
Taking over the running of WestCo's a year ago has enabled Pauline & Patric to bring their business experience to the dance world she loves so much. It has even resulted in Patric investing in some dance shoes after 27 years of resistance 😉
This dynamic husband & wife team know what it takes to make a real difference and are committed to ensuring WCS is more accessible and inclusive for all.
Pauline started with ballet classes at an early age but was excluded for growing too tall, she moved on to tap and modern stage before discovering Rock n Roll dancing in her teens. Moving to London in the 80's she discovered Pineapple Dance Studios, the Jiving Lindy Hoppers and her love for swing dancing exploded.
Decades later Pauline is delighted to be sharing her passion for dancing with Patric. Both of their daughters also dance and Skye has DJ'd many times bringing a youthful flush to our music policy.
Regulars now on the social dancing scene in the UK, you are sure to see them at an event near you soon 🙂
We have a pool of regular teachers who work in rotation to bring you the best quality teaching with guest teachers dropping in when it can be arranged.
At WestCo's we aim to introduce you to other teachers and organisers, so that when you want to spread your WCS wings, you will know some faces already and feel more at home in our growing dance scene.
Spread that WCS love around 🙂
* PRIVATE LESSONS AVAILABLE *
All our teachers are available for private lessons. (Prices range from £25 - 70 depending on experience of teacher)
Privates are the perfect opportunity to get feedback on your dancing and work on any areas to improve your technique.
You can come with a specific issue in mind or just ask the teacher what you need to work on.
At WestCo's we understand the benefits of having great DJs. We aim to bring you the best WCS DJs on the London scene for your dancing pleasure.
Wherever possible, we recruit an experienced DJ but we also support people wishing to try their hand at DJing by offering them a short set.
Playlists have their place but nothing beats an experienced DJ with their finger on the dancefloor's pulse.
