Salsa Rivera/July Newsletter
Dear Salsa Friends,
Summer is here and everyone’s schedule
will be changing and many may not be able to attend the Street Latin
Thursday Event at the Casino. I wanted to change the venue but
unfortunately between vacations and other priorities I will be short
3 teachers in June and 1 in July. So instead of making the changes
now I am pushing for September. At that time I will be offering 3
different classes for everyone’s benefit. There will be a Beginner
1-2, Beginner 3-Intermediate 1 and Intermediate/Advanced classes
offered so that whatever level you dance there is a class for you.
The classes will be shorten and a practice period will be add so you
can ask questions about the move, salsa dancing and at the same time
have a somewhat one on one with the teachers. I am hoping that this
change will benefit you all with your Salsa dancing.
Why take private lessons when group classes are
The simple answer is you can learn more in a
shorter period of time, by having a one on one, rather than with a
group of people that may be slower, faster or disruptive. Taking
group lessons is great and much is learned but the instructors
can’t fix what might be wrong with your dancing because they would
have to do it for everyone. So!!!! You learn a mistake from the
beginning, dance that way for a period of time and when caught later
it becomes very difficult to fix. My advise to all that are serious
about learn any dance, unless you are a natural taking a few private
lessons can help you strengthen your weak points along with fine
tuning your strong points.
I have been teaching for more than a few
decades and I am still learning what makes people excel at learning
to dance. It’s quite simple, I learn about that person, what they
do for a living and how their brains take instruction. When you
actually know your student you learn what gets them excited and what
bores them. While group classes are fun they can become frustrating
when you want to execute a move but you are having trouble with it
and the instructor can’t fix it because of the amount of people in
the class. Private lessons give you the opportunity to ask questions
see and feel the move, and then slowly with repetition you nail it.
Please don’t think that by taking private lessons with me you will
have to spend thousands of dollars. Not the case…I want you
dancing right away…feeling comfortable in your own body…gliding
on the floor with confidence…quite frankly I don’t want you as a
student forever. Take it from me whether you are a follower or a
leader I want you to enjoy the dance and the beauty of
partnership…the music and all the joy dancing brings to oneself.
So, if you are having trouble with steps, turns, moves or patterns
try taking a few private lessons and I guarantee you won’t be
sorry you did.
Thank you all for your ongoing support, without
you; I couldn’t do what I love most.
