We are so excited about the lesson changes- your instructors want to give you the most opportunities to learn as many kinds of swing dances as possible.
The board wants to hear your feedback... please let us know your thoughts about the restructure. I will have a suggestion box so people can give anonymous feedback if they wish : )
- I'd like to expand a little about the changes in the lessons starting
this month (today).
The level 1 class will no longer try to balance walk-ins and those
students preparing for Lindy 1. This class will be geared more toward
walk-ins and will take students on any week of the month.
The level 2 class will rotate through different dances like east
coast, charleston, lindy, balboa, and blues. It will always start
from the basics. We want beginners with very little experience in
this class, but it will be progressive so you will need to start from
The level 3 class will rotate through the same dances but will
continue with dance style from the previous month taught in level 2.
For example, we are teaching basic balboa in Level 2 this month, so we
will be teaching balboa in level 3 next month. Unlike the level 2
class, the curriculum will vary so that experienced dancers can learn
new material. This is going to give us two months of every dance
style every 6 months.
Up until now the level 4 (freestyle) was were we put balboa and shag
etc. As a result we haven't been free to teach harder lindy material
in that class. This month we will be teaching 20's charleston and a
dancer at any skill level will be invited to attend, but that may not
be the case after this month.
I'm really excited about these changes. I think that most all of our
students will get more out of the classes with this arrangement. I
believe that Amelia will have a suggestion box out tonight and we
welcome any feedback you guys have.
