About The Event

⭐️ SPECIAL GUEST TEACHER WORKSHOP ⭐️ 

When we first spoke to Joel at the US Open last year and found out that he will be in Europe, we just had to make sure we treat our students and booked him to come to Evolve WCS! We actually had him booked for ages but with the Jan and Feb socials and our brand new weekly class opening in Oxford we were just crazy busy!!! 🙈 But here it is!!! 

We are extremely excited to announce that Joel (and his hair 😂) will be joining us in March for a special Workshop! Sooooooo join us for a day full of fun and learning in Milton Keynes on Saturday, 7th March followed by Evening Social Dance with Guest DJ Paul Abbott.  ​ The classes will be leveled and progressive throughout the day so please be aware that you must be comfortable with all of your fundamental West Coast Swing basics to attend. 

************************************************** JOEL TORGESON **************************************************

Joel grew up in rural Minnesota firmly believing that dance was something that his sister did, not him. The University of Minnesota Ballroom Dance Club changed all of that when his friend Jack invited him out with the promise: ’There will be girls there!’ From that inflection point his life became increasingly focused around dance, ultimately leading him to postpone higher education in Biological Anthropology to pursue his dance dreams in Los Angeles. Now living in Austin, Texas and competing in the Showcase and All Star divisions he dances all over the country (and world!) for fun. He loves teaching workshops, especially concept-based ones, and has started experimenting with short collaboration videos as a way of promoting WCS to new groups of people. He also runs the dance wear brand Feather Three and writes a blog (joeltorgeson.com) that discusses various elements of both life and dance.
