Partner Dance Instruction with an emphasis on body/mind/community.
I look forward to meeting you on our dance journey together.
I loved your teaching style. We were all at different skill levels but when you were going over basic stuff, you managed to keep everyone engaged. I now have new techniques I can use while I’m teaching. I always try to walk away with a few things I like but with your class I feel like a walked away with a ton of stuff.
I felt really secure and welcomed in your classes. Your experience is sensible in various situations. I absolutely love your calm and peaceful way of teaching and the idea of the concept class: of first thinking inside different boxes (like grooving, ballrooming/direction, stretch/accordion), then combining them and finally think outside of it. Clear and structured, learned a lot. It was a pleasure.
I liked that you imbedded historical information with the various dance moves. I also liked the way you categorized moves. All together this helped to memorize new stuff and to understand stuff I have learned before on a deeper level. You are very clear and legible in your approach. You get the information across with very little effort. Very inspiring but on the same time relaxed and grounded.
The blues lesson: It was very ambitious! Quite cool squeezing so much history and create a timeline like that in just a few hours of blues lessons. We didn’t have much time to learn new steps but instead we learned to put a few moves in context and in a timeline. The amount of historical background in the dance lessons was novel to me and I really enjoyed it. Gave me inspiration to learn more.
I really liked the amount of thought that went into your classes! Each one had a really crisp concept that gave me new perspectives on how to think about my dancing, and the history of dance. When you combine that with your great energy, personality and high level didactics , I can’t really think of any way it could have been better. Thank you so much! <3 Also your DJ set was amazing. Had I known I would have asked you to DJ more!
OMG you’re an amazing teacher! The introductory lesson was the best I’ve ever had for fusion, by breaking down how partners need to turn up their listening in order to successfully and safely fuse. Switch dancing every lesson was a blast and increased my confidence as a follow. Its 4 days later and I still want to keep dancing and practicing.
