Event description

Description

A REAL Bootcamp.

An INTENSIVE experience.

72 HOURS over THREE days.

Mission: “To create competent, dignified, and courteous sensual social dancers with an emphasis on connection, musicality, and styling.”

Description:

Utilizing an entire thorough curriculum covering the theory of sensual dancing to a proper invitation to the first few 8-counts all the way through to the end of a dance, this is a complete educational experience that covers every salient component of dancing over a 72-Hour period. The idea is to give a framework for every step of social dancing with an emphasis on The Triumvirate of Connection, Musicality, and Styling™ Thus, students can expect to improve their dancing not just by watching a pattern or random footwork - but by receiving a template for dancing with an emphasis placed on the components that make a polished dancer look so polished: namely, Connection, Musicality, and Styling with at least one instructor at his or her side at all times.

Short Schedule:

The Bootcamp begins during the week on Thursday at a 8-bedroom home in Northwest Philadelphia at 6PM with preliminaries (what is sensual bachata, etc.) in a crash-course presentation and focuses more on beginning students to get them ready for the next 3 days. Level 1A, B, and C leads and Level 1 and 2 follows are encouraged to attend Thursday night. More advanced students are also welcome to attend to enhance their learning. Students at this point can stay all night and practice and learn with an instructor on site. There will be a room with bachata music playing ALL NIGHT. There is a hot tub, a wet and dry sauna, and massage tables that can be utilized by students.

On Friday, the Bootcamp resumes at 6PM with preliminaries once again covering the theory of sensual, the history of bachata, etc., with a more relaxed presentation (not a crash course) and begins with an evaluation of every dancer to determine his or her level. This is CRITICAL. Usually, there are a number of dancers of a similar level - but never is everyone in attendance the same level: a MAJOR shortcoming at festivals, congresses, weekenders, etc. We address this significant educational flaw by evaluating and placing every student in his or her appropriate level. At any given time, there may be 4-10 students working on a similar topic appropriate for their level with an instructor. This intimate environment is critical for learning. Teaching sessions and topics will rotate and repeat as needed.

On Saturday, it’s a Bootcamp! We begin at 7AM with a stretch and dancing for 15 minutes for everyone. Breakfast follows at 9AM and then jumps into level-appropriate material at 10AM for each dancer all day followed by social dancing at 10PM at a local event, Bachata Obsessions at the Stardust Ballroom (extra cost). Light food is provided throughout the day and there is an espresso machine.

On Sunday, we resume at 7AM and breakfast is at 10AM. Each dancer reviews everything that was learned up until about 4PM and then goes through a brief evaluation of his or her level and graduation. Each dancer receives an iHeartBachata T-shirt according to his or her level and Certificate of Completion.
