There are many group classes in ballroom dancing, why take private lessons?
Dancers quickly learn that the most important elements of ballroom dancing do not focus on choreography, but on body movement and connections. Group lessons focus on choreography due to the size of the group with students dancing with each other.
It is important to find a private instructor who is not only a good dancer, but has substantial training on how to teach! Glenn is certified in four different dance styles which consists of 24 different dances.
Students can learn faster one-on-one when they feel the correct movement from their instructor. The level of frustration is lower when a teacher can gear his/her teaching specifically to the student’s way of learning and motivation.
Glenn believes that learning a few beginning steps with good technique enhances the confidence of beginning dancers and lets them become independent social dancers, i.e. quality vs. quantity.
Most social dancing is done at the bronze level, which is the first 10 steps learned in each dance style. Couples often find that they learn at different levels. Glenn works with his male students to become active, moving leaders; and with his female students on how to respond and enhance the movement. He can lower the partnering frustration that naturally builds as both dancers build their individual skills.
Glenn offers different payment plans to accommodate his students’ budgets. As an independent teacher (versus a studio franchise instructor), he can offer the most value for your dollars spent.
