In English

Dance Connection Tampere ry (DCT) is a registered association of dancers founded in 2017. Its purpose is to organize events and parties, gathering people from Tampere and the nearby areas (and why not even further away!). Currently, we focus on west coast swing.

While the majority of this page is in Finnish, you can at least find a list of events here: Tapahtumat / Events. Do not hesitate to come and check it out!

You can try west coast swing and learn to dance in a basics class. These are usually organized as either workshops or brief ”taster” classes in the beginning of a party. See event details for more information: Tapahtumat / Events

Youtube is full of videos. Here’s a clip from a party: West Coast Swing – Sean McKeever & Alyssa Glanville – Social Dancing at DCS 2019 (You don’t have to be this skilled to enjoy dancing though!)

This was recorded in a summer party in Tampere: https://www.instagram.com/s/aGlnaGxpZ2h0OjE4MDU1NTA4NDEzMzI1MzA2?story_media_id=2875773238855474352_5856218807
