Foundational Articles for
Understanding Today's WCS

If you've been in the West Coast Swing world long enough, you know there's a huge revolution going on. And it all began with this blog, Facebook and a few articles. Over the course of six months, I wrote six groundbreaking and foundational articles for defining, restoring and preserving the dance we love.

I wrote about narcissism, I wrote about injuries, I wrote about Abstract Improvisation and I wrote about a whole lot more. The world was talking. The words spread like wildfire. The revolutionary seeds had been planted. And the flame grew hot.

These now-core elements were joined by even more articles and thousands of teachers and students live, teach and breathe by them in countries all over the world. They are the base upon which every single Weekly Note is written too. They are, frankly put, the WCS gospel.

Check out the first three chapters of this sensational bestselling WCS book, and see how they apply to the world beyond too:

They have now been compiled into one book, Telling the Truth: The Foundational Articles for Understanding Today's WCS, which is now available in both print and e-book on

At Over 350 Pages, Setting Dancers Free
Is the Largest Collection of Weekly Notes

This second bestseller is a collection of the most important Weekly WCS Notes. When Telling the Truth's carefully written articles no longer met the hungry demand for her writing, Katherine invented the "Weekly Note" format - an online publication that would not only be released on a weekly basis instead of monthly, but would contain more than one article at a time. 

Within weeks of their debut, Katherine's Weekly Notes were addressing 3 or more topics per Note, as well as inspirational quotes and helpful bits of trivia the dance was in danger of losing forever. If Katherine had changed the world of WCS with her articles, she turned volcanic with this new, ramped up format. 

But it did finally meet her readership's demands. In fact, these Weekly Note publications were so raw, honest and pure, that her readership grew rapidly to include other kinds of dancers, from ballroom to Broadway. Three months later, non-dancers from all walks of life, including celebrities, doctors and psychologists from all over the globe were signing up for the publication every day.

So grab Setting Dancers Free and read on while Katherine’s sharp wit, keen insights and engaging writing keeps you energized, excited and most of all... free.
