International Rally West Coast Swing: May - September

Early September every year, West Coast Swing dancers from all over the world come together and dance in flashmob fashion in prominent locations in their cities. The IRWCS routine is set in early May, and WCS dancers everywhere practice the routine over the next several months. The choreography is put together by Olivier and Virginie Massart (Lyon, France) to promote WCS to the local and worldwide community as the best dance in the world!
