Julie EpplettJulie Epplett has been teaching weekly West Coast Swing classes in Toronto since 2001, with an emphasis on building the local community through inclusiveness and staying true to the fundamental principles of true “social” dancing.Travel has always been a part of her life, so naturally Julie travels to dance events – and encourages her students to do so, too – in order to continue their growth as dancers and become part of the larger West Coast Swing community which now circles the globe.Julie enjoys competition (without taking it too seriously) and can claim bragging rights to 6th place in the Masters routine division at the US Open in 2010. She’s thrilled to see so many Toronto “Westies” competing in all levels and divisions, or simply discovering how fun West Coast Swing can be on the social dance floor.
