About our event

Sweet Side of Swing Sweet Side of Swing was developed with the intent of providing an opportunity for leaders and followers to explore the conversation of our dance, West Coast Swing. We understand that dancing is more than a pattern, the dance continually develops with both the leader and follower communicating equally throughout the dance. 

This hotel convention-style workshop weekend is the intense immersion experience you need to renovate, revitalize, and permanently reform your West Coast Swing.  The audition process and levelled workshops are designed to target your specific needs, whether you are just learning West Coast Swing or have been dancing for years. The positive, supportive, and inclusive learning atmosphere focuses on the soul of the dance - the conversation, technique, and expression - rather than the typical formula of pattern classes. Dancers walk away with fresh perspectives, tons of invaluable homework, and an empowering community mission. 

This year featuring 6 amazing instructors with 6 assistants in our Innovative Instructor Mentorship Program. Multiple  level  west coast swing class instruction tailored specifically for you, smaller class sizes, specialty classes. 4 nights of social dancing with globally recognized WCS DJ's, competitions, demo's, performances by our professional Sweet Team and fun team building activities to join to meet your dance community!

Sweet Side of Swing's goal is to build each other up through our shared passion of west coast swing.

Sponsorship Opportunities

To Whom It May Concern,

Sweet Side of Swing Northwest is an annual event held in Richmond, BC at the Executive Airport Plaza Hotel, June 22 – 25, 2017. This is our 2nd year in Richmond and we have a sister event in Atlanta, GA which has been running for 7 years now. This is an immersion West Coast Swing dance workshop weekend with multiple levels of workshops from beginner to advance taught by top champion dancer/instructors.  It is 3 days of levelled workshops to accelerate dancers learning; specialty solo movement workshops to help dancers with expanding their dance moves and team building activities to strengthen our dance community. 4 nights of social dancing with globally recognized West Coast Swing DJ’s, Competitions for prizes, Demo’s and performance by our professional staff.

We are looking for sponsorship monies to cover a few areas or in general. Our event is run on volunteers. They help with set up, tear down, picking up staff at the airport, registration/check-in, hospitality suite, door monitors and T-Shirt Sales. Our event would not happen if it wasn’t for them.  Some are compensated with event passes and some just want to help make things happen in our community.  Our hospitality suite, any promotional items of samples would be appreciated to include in our attendee bags or sponsoring any of our group activities with prizes, T-shirts, or donation of money.

Sponsoring our event would be supporting dance events to grow in the Vancouver. As well, our attendees help generate business in Richmond.  Bringing awareness to local businesses to our attendees would bring them during the event and follow up business after the event. Sweet Side of Swing Northwest will give you exposure to a close knit community.  You will not just be connecting with our attendees but also the community who views our website, Facebook, emails and word of mouth.  Depending on what level of sponsorship will depend on your exposure to our community.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards,

Maryann Newmeyer, Event Director

My name is Maryann Newmeyer, Event Director of Sweet Side of Swing Northwest.  I have been organizing West Coast Swing Workshops in Vancouver for the past 7 years. Hosting and DJing local Vancouver social dances 2-4 times annually.  I have been hiring top Champion West Coast Swing Instructors the U.S to teach workshop weekends here in Vancouver or local instructors to teach a class before a social dance on a Saturday night. 

I am a recognized member of the GlobalSwingDJ group since 2009 and have been providing the Vancouver West coast Swing dance community with social dance event since 2010. I administer a West Coast Swing Facebook group and keep our dance community updated with all the dance activities going on locally and near travels. I volunteer with our BC Swing Dance Club monthly, and Urban Beat Dance studio I donate my time as a DJ on a weekly basis to the social mixer. 

 I have also travelled within to Pacific Northwest to other cities to DJ, Compete and Volunteer at other events and a familiar name in the community. I also am a Coordinator with the largest West Coast Swing dance convention in Canada, SwingCouver. It is held in January.  

Holding workshop weekends with West Coast Swing in Vancouver to build our local communities dancing ability have been available because I have been organizing them for the past 7 years successfully.  We on average get 80 people attend our workshops. I manage everything from marketing, promotion, hiring instructor, registration, booking flights and venue. In the last two years, I decided to add my husband and a financial partner to my organizing to change a successful summer workshop weekend into multi-level workshop weekend. This growth required additional instructors, hotel and marketing. Last year was the first year of Sweet Side of Swing Northwest and was a success for it's first year.
