About Course

Above everything, this course is designed to teach you how to lead & follow correctly and how to make sure that your partner will feel comfortable dancing with you. The primary focus is to give you the correct skills and dancing foundation on which to build upon in the future, but we will of course also teach you figures and variations.

Our goal in DanceDifferent is not to create “figure monkeys” that can do a thousand moves while making the experience very uncomfortable for their partner. Our goal is to give you the right base so that your partner will be pleasantly surprised as to how comfortable and nice it is to dance with you.
