About our Club
M ilwaukee Rebels Swing Dance Club was founded for the purpose of promoting West Coast Swing (WCS). WCS is our main emphasis, however we welcome and encourage all styles of dancing. WCS is an exciting dance that really allows the dancer to develop their own style and interpret the music. WCS is primarily danced to rhythm and blues, but many other forms of music including pop, blues, rock and roll, disco, jazz, country and big band are perfect for this type of dance. This musical flexibility allows a dancer to strut their stuff at any nightclub, wedding reception, etc…. The Club is a great place to dance, socialize and listen to a wide variety of music.
- Learn to Dance

W e will focus on the basics. In addition, a few variations of the basics will be taught to get you comfortable on the social dance floor. We emphasize the technical aspects of the dance during our classes while keeping a smile on everyone’s face. The beginner classes provide a foundation which is built upon during intermediate lessons. We recommend that the beginner classes be taken as many times as needed until you feel comfortable with the moves and techniques. As soon as you feel confident, move up into the intermediate classes. The intermediate classes include more advanced moves, concepts, and techniques.
No preregistration required, just show up!!
