All Star/Champion Pass Expectations
We have always offered free passes to All Star and Champion level dancers at Swingtacular, and we have always been happy to. With that said, we have had quite a few All Star and Champion level dancers ask what we expect in exchange for this pass, which we greatly appreciate. Our answer in the past has always been something to the effect of: "Social dance your face off, make a bunch of people's weekend, and be your awesome self." This answer is, and always will be, applicable at Swingtacular. With that said, we are going to add a couple of small expectations to the list...
Westie Welcome Program
We are allowing up to 100 people in to Swingtacular FOR FREE... These individuals can only qualify for this pass if they have NEVER been to a full weekend WCS convention before. This means that we want to make them feel as welcome (thus the name) as humanly possible. We would like for our All Star and Champion level dancers that we comp into the event to attend the "Westie Welcome Crash Course", and/or at least one "Level 1" class throughout the weekend. The level one classes should include many of our Westie Welcome dancers as well. To be clear, we do NOT expect any of you to teach during any of these classes. We expect you to be there as an experienced dancer and friendly personality to help support the journey that the designated teacher is guiding them through.
We are also attempting to organize a "Warm-Up" session for our Westie Welcome dancers at the beginning of the "After Comp" social dancing transitioning to late night. We would LOVE for any of our All Star and Champion level dancers to help these dancers warm-up and get them inspired and amped for social dancing. We are very aware that for some of you, this may be immediately after a competition or performance, and you may need a few minutes to change, breathe, and reset. We absolutely encourage you to do so if this is the case.
