ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Mike Started teaching 10 years ago and rapidly became one of the top professionals on the UK circuit, travelling to & teaching all over the country as well as internationally both in the US and Europe. He has spent years mastering the art of teaching West Coast Swing.
In his own words and part of his 'step by step' approach to WCS teaching:
"Not all instructors are created equal. It is rare to find good dancers who are also truly good teachers. The earlier in your dance experience you are exposed to my West Coast Swing instruction, the easier it will be to learn, and the more fun you will have. my workshops are also entertaining (so I’ve been told); you will be shocked how much you are actually learning and all of it applies to the social dancefloor. I don’t teach pattern routines, If I can’t lead it on the social dance floor I won’t teach you it, "It's WCS for everybody".
If you are…
A Social Dancer: my instruction is designed for the social dancer in all of us! All classes will focus on socially leadable and followable skills so that you have the most enjoyable dance every time on the floor and you leave your partners wanting more.
If you are...
A Technical Dancer: If you are a technical dancer, you want to learn the technical nuances and details about West Coast Swing. All workshops focus on the aspects that unlock the secrets of this dance to help you become a better social ( and/ or competitive dancer).
Whatever you are, you will become…
A Versatile Dancer: As a versatile dancer, you enjoy seeing how West Coast Swing has been shaped and influenced over the years by different Musical genres and Dance styles. I will show how to dance to different music, also incorporate Lyrical Jazz, Tango, and Street Dance styling into your own West coast swing dance so that you stand out on the dance floor."
