Starts Thursday 26th April, 7:30pm @ St Barnabas Church, Dalston, E8 2EA

What is this? A six week module of sessions which aim to develop your dancing to an advanced level. The sessions will involve an hour of structured training followed by an hour of practising, drilling and social dancing to embed that learning into your dancing.

But why? The thing is with regular Advanced Level lessons is by that point in your dancing you’ve probably made some decisions about the style and direction you’d like your dancing to take. That can mean attending entire lessons where you come away thinking “well I’m never going to do that again”. That’s not to say Advanced lessons are wrong (they’re a great way to learn) but we would like to see if an alternative approach could work with a new group. These sessions will feel much more like a coaching session and rely on participants taking charge of their development.

Format: We (Leah & Ed) will provide a structure and an “inspiration” for the session and as a group we workshop/drill/experiment with that content finding the right way to incorporate it into your dancing. We build on the strengths of individuals and also learn how to develop our dancing independently. You will still learn new content but hopefully in a way that is more likely to come out on the social dance floor. Plus you’ll be training with a group of people who you’ll hopefully see at a lot of social dances so are more likely to be able to bust out your new skills. The first hour will be closely structured and the second will give you time to practise with Ed and Leah working as coaches to problem solve and offer suggestions.

Is this for me? These sessions are intended for experienced dancers who maybe feel that their develpment has stagnated or perhaps feel they've been to a lot of lessons and would like a new challenge. You should have danced for a number of years, attended international camps and be confident mixing up rhythms and styles. The sessions will include self-directed work so you should be collecting youtube clips, ideas and targets for yourself. Of course, in the first couple of sessions we will help you know where to start so you have clear targets for your dancing.
