Ask Questions & we will try to find answers
I was looking for an address in the local directory, and happened to open the Dance Schools page. I noted that there was only 2 listings that mentioned Ballroom Dancing in their listing - and we were one.
This got me thinking about the survival of dancing. I hear about a number of dance events around the region, but I wonder whether this is enough to allow dancing to grow.
Most dancers appear to be towards retirement age, and a number of them struggle to safely get though the dances they attempt.
I believe that an understanding of technique, and the ability to communicate (through leading and following) hold the answers.
I can show you all the secrets that will help you achieve your dream of gliding effortlesly across the dance floor. I have the knowlege and ability to teach you, because I have obtained essential Professional Qualifications in all the competition styles used by DanceSport Australia, and the Australian Dancing Board. I also adjudicate in these styles, and had been an examiner for ANDA.
Learn right, be safe & help me keep the Dancing Dream alive.
This year, I have made the following resolutions.
1) Get fitter and lose weight
2) Meet new people
3) Improve my balance and posture
4) Challenge my mind with new experiences and solving complex problems
5) Improve my quality of life
6) Reduce my visits to the doctor
7) Enjoy a wide variety of music
Does this list sound familiar?
Fortunately, I dont have to worry about breaking my new years resolutions.
I have them all covered because I AM A BALLROOM DANCER!
COME ALONG AND SHARE OUR 2018 RESOLUTIONS AT DANCEWAY BALLROOM DANCING STUDIO.
Thank you to all those dancers who contacted me in response to my previous post - Change or go Backwards.
As a result of your input, I am looking carefully at the calendar to include a Social Dance (possibly themed) in the near future - watch this space.
I have also included a daytime sequence class on Wednesday mornings.
The Social Sequence class will commence from Wednesday 19 July, and I am trialling it over Term 3. Start time is 9:30am, and it will run for 60 minutes. Cost is only $8 per person per class. This class will be followed with practice time between 10:30am to 11am - straight after the Social Sequence Class - and only cost $2 per person per session.
The final addition is 2 new Medal Classes - Silver Latin - Monday 6pm to 7pm, & Silver Star Standard Ballroom on Wednesday 6:30pm to 7:30pm.
Remember, if you want the studio to include new classes into our program, them please, be willing to support them by comming along, and bringing as many people as you can. By doing this, the studio can continue bringing you quality tuition, and am able to keep the prices down.
SEE YOU SOON!!!
In keeping with the studio vision of "Change or Go Backwards", I am asking dancers for their input.
What would you like to see at the studio?
I encourage everyone to submit ideas by adding your comments below.
I hope that your insight can add new ideas and programs into the studio.
Some suggestions currently under consideration are:
1) A social dance - possibly themed
2) A singles-only that will allow dancers to form groups for further social outings.
3) Exploring Latin American class.
The above are only suggestions, but remember, you gave to commit a minimum number of people (including yourself) to make such events viable.
Post your suggestions NOW, as I am looking for inclusions for Term 3 - commencing 18 July - so be quick.
