Learn West Coast Swing and All That Jazz

The city of Lompoc Recreation Division will be offering lessons in the official state dance of California — West Coast Swing.

West Coast Swing is smooth, sophisticated and elastic. It can be danced to just about any music from pop to country, big band to blues, up-tempo or smooth and slow.

The beginner class will be held 7-8 p.m. Wednesday nights running Aug. 2 through Sept. 6. The advanced class will be 8-9 p.m. the same nights. Both classes will be at the Dick DeWees Community and Senior Center.

Cost for each of the courses is $30 for Lompoc residents, $36 for non-residents. Participants must be age 18 and older.

In West Coast Swing, instructors will add variations to the basics students are learning (or already know) from the beginning class, and offer technique and style pointers to take swing dance to the next level.

The advanced class will be best for people who are also enrolled in the beginning class, or have taken at least one beginning West Coast Swing class previously.

For more information, contact the Lompoc Recreation Division at 875-8100, or register at 125 W. Walnut Ave.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
