Midsummer Swing Weekend
with Bret and Joëlle
24-26 June 2016
Originating from opposite sides of the world (USA/France), Bret and Joelle Navarre found each other through dance, and quickly realized they belonged together.
Ever since, they have been traveling the world teaching, competing, performing, judging and spreading West Coast Swing. They bring their own style on the dance floor, coming from a fusion of Bret’s background in Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary and Ballroom; mixed with Joëlle’s skills from Hip Hop, Belly Dance, Salsa and Afro-Caribbean Dances. Between the both of them, they combine over 25 years of experience dancing and teaching.
They are mostly recognized for their pedagogy, focusing on making their students understand the techniques and mechanisms involved in West Coast Swing, while maintaining a fun and welcoming learning atmosphere.
