Description

Class Experience

Students will learn basic Latin American and Ballroom technique in dances including Cha Cha Cha, Tango, Samba, Waltz, Charleston and Jive.
I have been teaching dance for over 25 years.  I am a qualified professional dance teacher with the NCDTA International (Northern Counties Dance Teachers Association, UK) and the IDTA (International Dance Teachers Association). I have taught all ages of Ballroom from young to adult.  I am currently the Children's Program Director of a Dance Studio in the USA.  

I competed in Ballroom all over the U.K. until I turned Professional to pursue a teaching career during which time I have trained many Ballroom competitors successfully winning events around the U.K.  I also taught the Ballroom and Latin American Society at Durham University teaching hundreds of students every week for many years before moving to the USA.  I am also a fan of 'Dancing With The Stars' and followed the UK version 'Strictly Come Dancing'; even appearing on the BBC show in some fun features!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learners will be assessed (after uploading their videos) via written comments in the classroom/learner messages or video feedback.  Feedback will be of a positive nature offering tips for improvement.
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please ensure children have enough space to move around while following along with the class videos.  Remove anything they may bump into or knock down (e.g. your expensive vase!)  

Class Attire:- Please wear appropriate free-moving clothes e.g. tee-shirt with leggings, leotard/circular skirt and wear either ballroom shoes, character shoes, jazz shoes, bare-feet or non-slip dance socks while they are practicing.  Check the floor surface isn't slippery.  

Fitness:- Your child should be in a fit and healthy state.  Please check with your doctor if you have any concerns.

Instructional Videos will be uploaded (unlisted) to YouTube.  These will be embedded into the Outschool Classroom and do not require you to have a Youtube Account.
