I offer services as a qualified and experienced dance teacher of social, partnered dance in the ballroom, latin, and swing styles.
Contact me for a tuition prgram designed specifically for your needs. Please note that I generally do not support competitive dancing.
I generally specialise in helping couples prepare for their wedding dance (see Wedding Steps). But I sometimes take other learners.
My fees are shown at the Wedding Steps site, but depending on your needs the fees may change. For example if you are considering a longer program, then the fees may be less (per lesson). If you need something more complicated or a very large group taught, then the fees would be negotiated on that basis.
I usually go to my students for lessons, rather than make them come to me. Not having a studio allows me to keep my costs down and my service very flexible.
I specialise in making the learning very easy and stress-free. There are many teaching techniques which I can draw upon for people with different learning styles and needs.
For example some people (usually males) have difficulty learning the latin rolling hip movement, and are embarrased about it. I have at least three different ways to teach it, and have always been successful in helping learners master it.
I especially enjoy working with beginners and couples. As an Aussie male I can identify with the challenges that male learners must face in social dancing. I have developed very effective approaches for helping them learn easily.
I am confident of being able to help you achieve your goals in dancing.
