This event is now completely sold out! In fact, we are actually over-subscribed if we include team members! If you’d like to be added to the cancellation list, let me know. But please do not show up on the door as you will be turned away which will be embarrassing for all involved. Thank you!
I’m delighted to announce that our rescheduled date has been confirmed for Saturday 21-Sunday 22 May 2022, possibly with baby Zola in tow! Congratulations to Maxime & Torri on the birth of your beautiful baby girl! All bookings/payments received for our 2020 date that was postponed due to lockdown will be automatically transferred to 2022 but if you’d prefer a refund, no problem, just ask!
I am delighted to announce that the fabulously talented top international WCS Pros Maxime & Torri Zzaoui will be coming over once again exclusively for West Coast Swing UK from 21-22 May 2022 for an intensive workshop weekend.

Unfortunately I was unable to negotiate a hotel deal this time around as our usual hotel is still on a Covid contract and therefore closed to the general public. However, myself and others have booked at the Premiere Inn M4/J4 instead as it’s close to the venue and reasonably priced.
Maxime started dancing at the age of 5 in Lyon, France. He studied contemporary at the Conservatory for 6 years before starting his career in the West Coast Swing community. He is now one of the top male professionals and was the first European to place in the top 5 of the Classic division at the US Open 2012.
Torri began dancing when she was 3 years old in California, USA. She has studied other dances, but has always been a part of the West Coast Swing community. She has won the Young America/Young Adult division a total of 6 times at the US Open. Torri was the first and only person to win both the Classic and Showcase division in the same year at the 2010 US Open and continued to win the Showcase division for the next 4 years.
Maxime & Torri recently decided to build a partnership and travel the world teaching together. They love the fun and social atmosphere of West Coast Swing and always want to make their classes informative yet enjoyable for everyone.
