Experience WEDNESDAY's Local Social Dance

Arriving early in Seoul?

Join us for a local social dance at Westies’!

The heart of West Coast Swing Dancing in Korea, Westies’ is located in the heart of Gangnam, Seoul’s upscale, modern center—home to gleaming skyscrapers, great shopping, and dining options ranging from high-end restaurants to bars serving fried chicken and soju rice wine. On a normal week, Westies’ is home to all levels of WCS classes, workshops, and social dancing three nights a week! But the week of the event, Westies’ will be closed for the weekend, so Wednesday is your best chance to join us and experience the local dance scene and welcoming community for yourself!
