Westie Fest

Westie Fest

Montreal Westie Fest is Montreal’s premiere pure west coast swing WSDC event (formally known as Montreal Dance Fest). This will be our third year of hosting this fun weekend and we have the pleasure to announce that we will be moving into the beautiful Marriott Airport Hotel!

This year we are offering workshops recommended by WSDC points levels, as well as a special invitational class which will be by audition only.  We are bringing an exciting and dynamic teaching staff this year, including several instructors from France, as well as long standing instructors from the USA and Canada.  All night long social dances, many different competition categories, including the exciting Swing 16 Tournament. Add this event to your calendar and join us for an unforgettable weekend! A bientot!

We are excited to be a part of the innovative and exciting “Swing 16” North American tour.   At each event you compete in Swing 16, you gain points (as well as prize money if you win at an event).  At the end of the season, the top 16 leaders and followers are invited to the finals, this year at Charlotte Westie Fest, to compete for thousands of dollars in prize money plus lots and lots of event passes.  Learn more at www.swing16.com

Look out for Montreal Westie Fest Event Director, Andrew Sinclair at 3:45!
