A weekend full of workshops and social dancing. International instructors teaching 2 different levels make this event available for everyone regardless if you just started West Coast Swing or has been dancing for several years.

Instructors

Vienna, Austria

Stella Maria Schletterer & Christopher Piffel

Chris and Stella first got to know West Coast Swing in 2015, while he was working as a trained ballroom teacher and she was preparing for her final concert degree at the music university of Vienna. They immediately fell in love with this fascinating dance (well, and each other too). After visiting their first event abroad and experiencing the international community their main goal was to grow the number of Austrian dancers, forming a local community. Since 2016 they have been teaching weekly classes and workshops as well as training and travelling with their students.

Chris and Stella are among Austrias best West Coast Swing dancers, competing in Advanced and Allstar division; they won first prizes at competitions in Zurich, Tel Aviv, Warsaw, Freiburg, Budapest, Vienna, Düsseldorf and many more. In 2021, right during the pandemic, they enthusiastically opened their own West Coast Swing dance studio and community homebase called „DER TANZBOGEN“ in the centre of Vienna.
