Before I text my experiences. Please note that the subjects I have chosen to tutor/train are strictly the Basics, and are meant for those in the beginning/intermediate level.
I have taught ballroom dancing for about 15 yrs. During this time, I also competed in the professional circuit. My partner and I, at that time, were the first ever to represent Oregon in the Unites States Ballroom Championship. Students I have taught (both one-on-one as well as group sessions)
ranged from the ages of 12 to 60+.. I have done group classes for students in OSU as well as UO on numerous occassion.
Although I have retired 10 years ago, I have just started teaching on a less then part time base. I was also the Dance Director at this time. A duty of the Dance Director is to train the Dance Teachers.
I have done some volunteer work for the local YMCA as a volleyball coach. I have never been to the Olympics, but I do know the basics, how to effectively use it, and pass these important tools to you.
