BE READY FOR THE NEW BEGINNING
This venue is in an excellent location, close to the Sacramento International Airport, right across the street from Sacramento’s beautiful Arden Fair Mall. Nearby, in addition to the hundreds of retails outlets Arden Fair Mall offers, there are numerous restaurants and bars – many within walking distance – plus movie theaters and so much more! (And don’t forget, because it’s a Double Tree Hotel, there will be free, warm cookies at check-in!)
Our goal is to take the best elements of Chico Dance Sensation as a starting point for the “The After Party.” So, as always, we will have an incredible staff of instructors, deejays and judges as well as a friendly, relaxed, and fun atmosphere. Here are some additional treats in store for you:
- Over 25 leveled WCS and Solo workshops included with your pass
- Nine competitions, and yes, our Jack & Jill contests award WSDC points!
- Two incredible emcees: Andrew Slac and Ben Morris
- An incredible DJ staff and sound system
- Themed party for Saturday night
- Free parking and free Wi-Fi for After Party hotel guests
- Other Special Surprises and Performances
This is the continuation of the best West Coast Swing After Party in the business! This is a West Coast Swing Experience that you don’t want to miss!
Thank you so much for your understanding and support!

Sacramento International Airport (SMF), which is serviced by all major airlines.
California’s capital city, Sacramento, offers a range of exciting, educational and historic attractions sure to entertain all. Families will want to check out the cheetahs, jaguars and crocodiles at the Zoo while political buffs should head to the state Capitol, which features a park and museum on California history, or the Governor’s Mansion. Anyone with an interest in trains will enjoy the Railroad Museum’s massive collection of antique locomotives. Everyone will enjoy the restaurants and shops of historic Old Sacramento on the city’s lovely waterfront.
Sacramento boasts wonderful restaurants and bars, parks, museums, Old Sacramento area, the governors mansion, the State Capitol and many other fun attractions. The beautiful Lake Tahoe is about 1.5 hours away, as well as San Francisco.
Oh yes, Sacramento also has the famous Naked Lounge and Temple Coffee Shops. So, you can still get your “Bowl of Soul.”
