Workshops are a great way to improve your dancing in a short space of time. If we compare dancing with the game Snakes and Ladders, then workshops are definitely ladders.
A workshop is an intense period of learning designed to fast track your dancing up to the next level. We try to ensure there are even numbers of participants for maximum benefit.
The basics are the first things learnt and the last things mastered - workshops help you work towards mastering the basics as well as challenging yourself with more advanced material.
If a Tea Dance is held on the same weekend as a workshop then entry is free if you have paid for the workshop.
- You must pre-book to attend.
- Registration only valid with full payment.
The Four Foundation Workshops
Our foundation workshops have been developed over the years and are part of our core syllabus.
We recommend all dancers attend these workshops at least once during their time with us. In fact we think the content of each workshop is so important that dancers who have already attended one of these workshops can attend the same workshop again (for a given role if applicable).
Over the years we often hear from advanced dancers who attend workshops with top teachers and professionals overseas where they get to go over the finer points of the basic techniques. They come back and zealously tell us that we should teach this too - we do - in our standard workshops! It's just that when they were beginners they thought it was too basic for them - "The teacher appears when the student is ready."
Deb's Dancing Pies
Workshops can help develop slices of dancing pie. See Deb's Dancing Pies for more information regarding the size of slices for different levels of dancer.
