Seville Quarter Anchor Steps Swing NightAnchor Steps Plus – Dance Night
Every Tuesday 7:00pm – 12:00am
Anchor Steps Plus is a social dance, no partner required or necessary to attend. Most dancers that attend come as singles which allows everyone to dance with multiple people through out the night. We pride ourselves on the ability to be versatile enough to change with the scene rather than forcing the scene to follow the staff. As such, you can expect to hear a wide variety of music most of which you would easily hear on any given weekend night by a cover band. This allows excellent practice in a safe, friendly environment to build your abilities and your confidence for when you are out on the town instead of at a dance event. We play top 40 music with other varieties of music thrown in to incorporate other styles of dances to make this dance not only west coast swing but also a large variety of other dances. If you do not know how to do these dances, please join us for the lessons that happens every Wednesday before the dance!

The term ‘Anchor Step’ is used to denote a dance step in which you should not come towards your partner at the end of a pattern. An Anchor is NOT a foot position and not a Rhythm. It is a partner connection in West Coast Swing among other dances, achieved when both partners place their Center Point of Balance behind the heel of the forward foot.
However the name ‘Anchor Steps Plus’ was chosen for far more reasons than just the dance step. As recognition to Pensacola’s multiple Naval Bases as well as the anchor being a foundation to keep hold fast in rough waters our ‘Anchor’ was created when our Pensacola dance community came together with Seville Quarter to reestablish ourselves in the community on a new stronger foundation. In addition to being the new and improved venue for weeknight social dancing, the ‘plus’ is to let all our dancers and potential dancers know that while our dance began as a ‘west coast dance’ scene, we have grown and we are now including lessons and music to allow for dancing of many different styles such as salsa, chacha, jitterbug, and even throwing in a few ballroom dances here and there.
