Led by Phil LaMothe

 

That’s right -  this is a Boot Camp for West Coast Swing!

You now have the opportunity to participate in a 3-1/2 hour West Coast Swing Swing-Camp led by West Coast Swing instructor Phil LaMothe.

 

Phil is the only instructor in New Jersey who has a West Coast Swing development program, and he is bringing that knowledge to you in this event.

 

This Swing-Camp will begin with a focus on the fundamental concepts of the dance.  As the event continues, Phil will be adding higher-level concepts and steps.
 

About the instructor:  Phil LaMothe is the owner and operator of Rhythm in Shoes Dance Studio, which has the longest running West Coast Swing development program in the Northeast, specializing in developing social and competitive WCS dancers.

Phil began his dance career at age 11 as a competitive figure skater.  He transitioned to Ballroom dancing in 1973, and has been teaching, coaching and judging ever since.

He began his West Coast Swing training in 1993 working with the best teachers and judges over the course of three years.  Phil has been teaching WCS for more than 25 years, and judging WCS events as a senior judge for more than 20 years.

Phil is also available for private lessons.
