Upcoming West Coast Swing Events

Jive Addiction has been at the forefront of growth of WCS in the UK and Europe since 2004.

It has been a passion of ours ever since. In the early days we flew in many of the top US Pro’s for our dance events 3 or 4 times a year. In 2007, we launched the first 100% WCS weekend with the introduction of the ‘UK WCS Champs’, and became the very first World Swing Dance Council Registry Event outside the USA. Being voted the ‘Best International West Coast Swing Event’ in 2011 at the Westie Awards in the USA was a very proud moment on our West Coast Swing journey.

These championships have evolved into the UK & European Championships and in 2020 it will be our 13th Annual celebration of West Coast Swing

Our goal, as it has always been, is to continue the development and growth of the dance and to highlight the European presence in the international west coast swing community, honouring its rich history and maintaining its true spirit.
