"Solo Swing" Workshop has been Added!!

I have just added a special SOLO SWING WORKSHOP!!!

The Solo Swing Workshop is going to be a blast! 

Jakub and Emeline will choreograph to a specific song and then teach the choreography to you in a workshop format. Then you will get to dance it to the music. This is not a partnered class and is gender neutral....meaning both male and female.

What will you learn?

Muscality, body movement, isolations & rhythm.

Is this the workshop for you?

The Solo Swing Workshop is for individuals that want to improve their movement and musicality. You should have a good understanding of counting music and be comfortable moving to participate in this workshop.

About the Workshop Teachers


Jakub Jakoubek and Emeline Rochefeuille:


Natively from Czech Republic & Reunion Island, Jakub and Em took their first steps into the dance world at the age of 16 and 12, both starting with Ballroom Dancing (Latin, Standard & line-dancing).

After her arrival in France at the age of 18, as Em sought to start a new dance form, she bumped into a video of Jordan & Tatiana, and fell in love with WCS right away. She was trained by Maxence Martin who gave her a solid knowledge from which she developed her own dancing and teaching style. Today, she acts in the WCS Community not only as a teacher, but also as a DJ and photographer.

Jakub’s dance world consists of social dances such as Zouk, WCS or Salsa but there is also a part of solo or group Modern and Contemporary dances. He started to dance and compete in WCS in 2014, guided mainly by Maxence Martin and Mario Robau, while using a lot of his background knowledge in his approach. His philosophy in dance is focused on communication.

They were both hooked since they discovered WCS, and were especially drawn to the creativity, musicality, and freedom within the dance. Just by pure chance, they had to teach together in a styling workshop in June 2016, thanks to Adam and Rita. At the end of the week-end the students suggested that they should partner up, so they did :D They have been traveling the world ever since, flying from country to country to share their passion for WCS, and they love it…
