West Coast Swing, Ballroom, & Social Dancing

Where to learn & dance WCS throughout the week:


Monday Nights

Desirae Vasquez and Matt Davis are exceptionally focused on providing students with the tools they need to succeed at both learning and just plain learning to love west coast swing dance. Every Monday night, Matt and Desirae run a night of west coast swing lessons and dancing at the ideally-located Ballroom in Boston (300 Western Avenue, 3rd Floor, Allston, MA). Join the fun starting at 7:30 for our innovative lab class, stick around for our beginner series and intermediate lessons at 8:15, and dance away your Monday at 9 with our social party!
