Description

In this course, I'll give you a step by step breakdown of how to go from any level of discomfort or awkwardness on the dance floor to being confident, feeling comfortable in your own skin, and dancing with coordination and rhythm. I teach movement and dance around the world, and I specialize in working with people who are new to dancing. My goal is to get you out on the dance floor having fun and feeling great as soon as possible.

Here's what you'll get:

  • Moves you can use to music you'll hear at parties, bars, clubs, conventions, weddings, and other social situations.
  • Rhythm training. Can't keep a beat? I'll show you how. Have rhythm in only part of your body? Get ready for that to change.
  • Movement quality training. Do you feel stiff, awkward, or un-coordinated? I'll give you effective and accessible exercises that will teach you to move well. I have not seen this material anywhere else.
  • Convenient practice videos. If you have 2 minutes to spare, you can use it to improve your dancing.
  • Confidence building exercises and step-by-step plan. Conquer the mental and physical blocks that keep you from having fun on the dance floor. 
  • BONUS Cool Moves section. If you want to go beyond fundamentals and impress people, this is for you.
Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who wants to look and feel good on the dance floor.
