NDCA registered Teacher; Our syllabus includes the DVIDA and USISTD syllabi along with any other NDCA recognized patterns.
As teachers, our job is to help students reach their goals. We want them dancing comfortably and confidently with another as soon as possible. Accomplishing this means teaching at a level of professionalism much like you would train in a gym (except more fun). Once goals are established that allows for the coach to customize lessons to help students expedite through their learning curves. The technique applied is well suited to any level of dancer, brand new or experienced athlete. This allows for better movement that lowers risk of injury, builds better muscle control and make your dancing that much more fun to do and watch. We make every effort to help each student accomplish his or her goals and expectations, while making the process enjoyable.
Private instructions are scheduled by appointment and are 45 minutes long. These sessions are used to focus on the students' dances of interest. Basic technique, patterns and musicality will be the foundation needed and recommended to learn first on private lessons before moving on to most group classes. Depending on goals and sessions taken per week, learning all of the basics for 2-4 dances in a month is not uncommon.
Group classes introduce students to new dances and patterns or allow them to brush up on dances with some repetition. This is a great way to also practice and learn how to dance with others in a controlled environment. These classes do require a minimum number of people to sign up for the class to begin, so please call or email to sign up for groups. Unless otherwise mentioned, all group classes are 4 week series classes (1 hour session per week) that start at the beginning of the month. It is recommended to start the class at the beginning of the series and not the middle, especially for new students.
Test it out with a free 25 min. wedding consultation lesson. If you have a song picked out already, you're already ahead of the ballgame! After briefly discussing an idea for your wedding dance, your free lesson will start both of you off with some basics to begin your journey towards the big day! It will be the least stressful, if not most enjoyable, part of your wedding planning.
