802 Westie Collective is a dance organization created and run by members of the Vermont dance community. We specialize in West Coast Swing, offering weekly social dancing, lessons, and an enthusiastic community.
We dance at the Champlain Club in Burlington every Wednesday, and the 1st Saturday of each month. Check out announcements for details about our current classes and dances!
We love West Coast Swing because it is a versatile partner dance that can be danced to nearly any genre of music. Dancing West Coast Swing is an opportunity to connect with the music and with other people.
We are a new organization in the midst of forming as a community-led nonprofit (including a formal mission and vision!), which we think will best support our West Coast Swing community. We still have a lot of work to do behind the scenes and we’re lucky to have the support of the Vermont Swings umbrella in the meantime.
