UK’s Biggest West Coast Swing event!!!!
Solo Followers are now joining a waiting list.

Registration is open for our 15th edition of MSO, the first hotel based West Coast Swing event and longest running WSDC event outside of North America.  Welcoming dancers from all over the world to attend this WCS spectacular. Including WSDC J&J’s, Strictly Swing, Classic, Showcase, Rising Star, Pro-Am are just some of the highlights of the event.

Lee & Fabienne Easton have been the organisers of MSO since the concept of the event which came from Paul Harris who now resides in the USA.  2009 at the Northampton Hilton Hotel was the launch of Midland Swing Open. In 2011 we moved to Birmingham, to Manchester for a year and then in Slough for the next five.  In 2024 will move to Heathrow.  Our ambition for MSO continues to be, to bring the highest standard of International WCS competitions to the UK.   

Our Allstar & Champion staff are some of the best in the business. Attending Midland Swing Open is like attending no other event.  Come and feel the late night atmosphere of the ballroom. The music, the dancers, you’ll be inspired by what you see and hear. Inspired so much you’ll want to dance all night!!
