Oh…You have Questions? Then I got Answers!

Why two locations?

Well folks, in case ya hadn’t noticed, the Denton/Fort Worth/Dallas Metroplex is BIG!
..— Really, REALLY BIG!

So, I found two awesome dance studios who wanted to add Line Dance Classes to their schedules: one located just a tiny bit west of downtown Fort Worth and one on the other side of the metroplex in East Dallas.

Choose the one closest to you or come to both!  Woot!
..

What line dances will you be teaching?

In months which have four weeks, I will teach the best dances from the “Top Ten Lists” selected from the World Linedance Newsletter, LineDancer Magazine, Kickit, and Copperknob.

That means you will be learning the latest, greatest, hottest, most awesome dances on the planet!

>>> Sign up to get announcements of the specific dances I’ll teach that week. <<<
..

Do you ever teach older “classic” line dances?

I am sooooo glad you asked!  YES!!!!  Absolutely YES!  Woot!

In months that have five weeks, the Fifth Week is my “Oldie-but-Goodie BONUS Week” where I teach a classic line dance that has stood the test of time.

Let’s be frank.  Line Dances are like fashion, they come and go.  But some, just like a tuxedo, are timeless.  But if you just got started in line dancing, you face a problem!  Where are you supposed to learn those cool classic dances that everyone else seems to know?  Well, friend, I gotcha covered!

And… [ drum roll please ] March is a FIVE WEEK MONTH!!!!  Wooo Hoo!
..

How difficult / what level are the line dances you teach?

The dances will range from Beginner, romp through Improver, and occasionally include Low Intermediate dances.

But no worries!  Anyone who can walk and hum along with a song, or walk and snap their fingers along with the music can handle my classes.

Why?  Because not only do I show you the pattern, I teach you how to do the steps!  Woot!  Yay!  Yippee!

Plus, if at anytime you encounter a step that is above your current skill level, I have alternate steps in my “bag-o-steps” that I can whip out to make any dance easier!

Have I mentioned that my class is all about FUN? Good!  🙂
..

For what age range are your classes?

All ages are welcome!

I have taught dancers from as young as seven to dancers well over seventy!  Bring the whole family!

Young dancers are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian and they’ve mastered the social skills needed to take part in a group learning experience.

Older dancers are welcome as well.  If at any time you have difficulty with a particular step in a dance, no worries!!!  I have alternate steps in my “bag-o-steps” that I can whip out to make any dance easier!
..

What is the “Open Dancing / Warm-up” that you mentioned up above?

One of the most frustrating things that I’ve encountered when I have taken line dance classes is sometimes I learn a cool line dance and I never ever get a chance to dance it again after the class!  Friends, that’s just not right!

So, in my classes, you’ll get a chance to dance the dances you’ve learned!  Woo Hoo!  Yay!  Yippee!

From 6:00 to 6:15 I play music for the dances that I’ve recently taught in the past month or so.  This also allows a little bit of wiggle room to accommodate folks who are coming straight from work and who might get caught in traffic.

The teach of the “new dance” each week will start promptly at 6:15 pm.
..

So who are you? What is your dance background?

me 544x544I love dance.  I’ve been dancing since the disco era.  Literally.

I have a Bachelor of Arts from the University of North Texas School of Radio, Theater, Film and Dance.

I’ve taught Line Dance for over ten years — at first for free and then eventually as a professional.  I’ve competed in line dance in ACDA, UCWDC, IAGLCWDC and IGRA.

You may have even taken one of the many workshops I’ve taught at dance events over the years!

I am an eight-time UCWDC Country Dance World Champion — five of those World Champion titles are in Line Dance and three are in Couples. I’m a multi-time ACDA National Champion as well.

I have had the good fortune to have been coached by some of the best Line Dancers on the planet: Clive Stevens, Emily Bouchonville-Drinkall, Monique Rouleau, Bernadette Carmichael, Darren Paul, Brian Barakauskas, Jo Thompson Szymanski, Michele Burton & Michael Barr, Barry & Dari Anne Amato and Guyton Mundy.
..

Will you ever have an “Intermediate / Advanced” Line Dance Class?

I certainly hope so!  Woot!

Right now, these two classes are brand new so I’m trying to offer dances that most folks can do.

If there is enough demand for an Intermediate/Advanced class then I will cheerfully add that class to the schedule.

However, if you’ve spotted an awesome “Int/Adv” dance on YouTube and want to learn it now…then you can book a private lesson with me.
..

Do you offer private Line Dance Lessons?

Yes! Absolutely!

I have arrangements with several studios in the Dallas / Fort Worth area so we can easily find a location that is convenient for us to meet.

Use my Contact Form if you are interested in booking a private lesson.
..

Do you coach Line Dance Competitors?

Yes! Competing and coaching competitors is a passion of mine.

Not local?  Not a problem.  Thanks to the Internet, it is possible to do long-distance coaching.  Or we can hook up at one of the Dance Events that I’ll attend this year.

Use my Contact Form if you are interested in coaching.
..

I’m not sure if I want to compete yet, but I’m curious…can you help?

Yes! Absolutely!  I have a “Special Offer” that I make to anyone who is thinking about competing in Line Dance — 50% off my usual rates!

Read more about my special “Introduction to Line Dance Competition” lesson or use my Contact Form to book the lesson now.
..

Do you teach couples dancing?

Yes, I do.  Right now, I teach:

…..— West Coast Swing
…..— Two-Step
…..— Texas Two-step, sometimes called “Three-step”

If you are interested in learning other dance styles, contact me. I’ll ask you a few questions and I’ll steer you toward a good instructor who will be able to teach you the style of dance in which you are interested.

Coming soon…

The list of “dances I teach” will soon increase by leaps and bounds! Yay!

I’m currently in the Dance Instructor Training Program at DanceMakers of Texas.  There I’m learning the Ballroom dances and the “following” part of the Country Dances that I already know from the Leader’s viewpoint.

Once I complete that training, I’ll be able to teach:

Country Western:
Triple Two-step, Polka, Night Club Two-step, Cha-Cha, Waltz, Two Step, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Texas Two-step (aka “Three-step), Progressive/Double Two-Step (what folks at the Roundup call the Shuffle)

Swing:
West Coast Swing, East Coast Swing

Ballroom:
Waltz, Foxtrot, Cha-Cha, Rumba, Tango, East Coast Swing
..

Still got questions?

If there is anything you want to know that I haven’t covered, then feel free to contact me.

See ya on the dance floor!
