Rachelle will be running a ladies styling and optional performance course - perfect for those improvers/intermediate level dancers who want to work on their body movement, styling and confidence on the dance floor.
The main body of the course runs for 10 weeks, during which time you will learn a choreography to a set song. The moves and style you get from this can easily be taken into your social dancing and you will notice your enjoyment and ability to move to the music improve ten-fold! For those ladies wanting to have the opportunity to perform, you can then choose to have an extra 4 weeks of lessons where the choreography will be further polished with a focus on performance and presentation skills. This part is optional...you only perform if you want to!
Cost: $110 for the initial 10 weeks, or $15 drop in. If you choose to perform it is then an extra $40 for the additional 4 weeks (no drop-ins for this one!). Please see Rachelle for more details, or contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org
