Now and always, Hailee wishes to encourage others in persistence and hope in their dance journey, and inspire them to never give up on living their dream — despite the obstacles
that may come up along the way.

  • Is there a level for those brand new to west coast swing?
  • No, we do not have a level for brand new to WCS. We suggest learning some basics before attending this weekend. Attendees should have some experience with West Coast Swing. This year, Sweet Side of Swing Northwest 2017 has added the Newcomer Intensive. This is for those who have taken some lessons in WCS; either newer to the WCS community, been away from dancing for a period of time and want to get back into the scene, experienced dancers who need to fine-tune their fundamentals or dance instructors looking to upgrade their teaching skills.
  • What is the difference between the levels?
  • The Newcomer Intensive focuses on core concepts and movement. These are designed to give newer dancers a good understanding of the core movements at an accelerated pace. This intensive will help experienced WCS dancers build a stronger confidence with their fundamentals and timing. No Audition required!

  • How will I be placed in a specific level?
  • At Sweet, we want you to feel honoured and respected through every phase of the learning process, including how you are placed in your designated learning groups.
  • During the registration process you will complete a self-assessment by answering a series of questions about your dance experience. This is not a test—there is no pass or fail. Based on your self-assessment, you will be initially grouped with other dancers of similar dance experience for the Friday Jack & Jill placement audition session.
  • During the placement audition session, you will dance to three or four different songs with three to four different dance partners of similar dance experience based on their self-assessment. These three or four dance partners will rate your skill set and you will rate theirs. You will vote to keep your partner in the level you are initially grouped, or move them to a different level.
  • During those same dances, the instructors will also be rating your skill set. They will vote to keep you in the level you are in, or move you to a different level. ALL dancers will audition for EVERY level, from beginners to All-Stars, unless you are taking the Newcomer Intensive) so the instructors get an accurate picture of the entire event and can sort dancers more precisely into levels that are not based on any points. They are view you on your skill level dancing in a J&J format with the group you were assigned to.
  • Based on your self-assessment, the votes of the instructors and your dance partners, you will be placed in an appropriate level. The result of this process is legitimate, definitive, homogenous groups that can learn and be challenged at the same pace, which is what makes Sweet Side of Swing a global model for levelled workshops. 
  • How will I know what level I am dancing?
  • During the Friday placement audition session, everyone will be wearing a number. Friday afternoon you will visit the check-in desk to find out your workshop level and receive a new wristband with the appropriate level marked.
  • What if I don't like the level in which I am placed?
  • There will be a final chance for you to audition in front of a panel of instructors Friday evening to review your skill set. This will be a "clean slate" audition. They will not look at your scores from the morning Placement Session, WSDC points you may have or who you take lessons from. You will dance with a few partners and the judges will give their final decision.  This will be the final call. No going back.  You can ask for feedback prior to attending the "clean slate audition" to make your decision if you wish to stay where you were placed or take the chance; as long as you believe you are at the level you wish to be placed at.
  • What if I don’t want to participate in the placement session?
  • That is OK! If you don’t want to dance in the placement session, just let us know. ALL ATTENDEES go throught the 3-step process by their Self-Assessment, Instructor Assessment and Peer Assessment. If you choose not to attend the Placement Session or Audition, you are missing 2 out of the 3 components of the process and therefore we cannot properly assess your skill level.  Those who are registering for the limited "Levelled only" passes must provide their WSDC number for us to place them into an appropriate level. They are also able to audition up if they want to attend the "Clean slate" audition on Friday afternoon for an additional fee.
  • Can I register by myself?
  • Yes, you do not need a registration partner to register this year.
  • There are individual passes sold unless our numbers get unbalanced. If we end up with an unbalanced registration, we will limit registration to partner only or the role we have less numbers only.

2014 Workshop - 300 Level

2014 Workshop - 200 Level

Sweet Side of Swing was first organized in 2010 in Atlanta, GA USA by Alan Annicella. The first event was held in January, 2011.

Sweet Side of Swing Sweet Side of Swing was developed with the intent of providing an opportunity for leaders and followers to explore the conversation of our dance, west coast swing. Through our experiences with dancing west coast swing, we understand that west coast swing is more than a pattern, the dance continually develops with both the leader and follower communicating equally throughout the dance.

Sweet Side of Swing has been organized to provide leaders with an opportunity to learn how to communicate clearly with the follower. This communication includes "speaking to" and "listening to" the follower. This includes learning good technique, connection, and how to be responsive to the follower. Developing a leader's ability to recognize what a follower is bringing to the dance and developing a leader's capacity to allow a follower to express their creative skills will provide that leader with a unique ability to share an amazing dance every time that leader steps onto the dance floor.

Sweet Side of Swing provides followers an experience where they can learn to integrate their own unique style and artestry into the music and the moments that are shared with their partner. Followers will be taught how to initiate, respond, and create within our dance. Followers will be given the opportunity to express their passion for west coast swing and bring out the fire of that lies within.

Sweet Side of Swing's goal is to build each other up through our shared passion of west coast swing.

In 2016 Sweet Side of Swing expanded internationally with Sweet Side of Swing Northwest in Vancouver, BC, CANADA
