Recently we (Boulder Swing Dance) have been working to improve our level 3 classes, and our goal is to bring higher quality instruction, and better consistency within the class. To accomplish this goal, we are going to try something new:
-The class series will last 2 full months
-The class will be audition based (auditions will happen on the first week, the series will begin the following week)
-Every 8 week class series will offer a new & fabulous local instructor
The April-May classes will feature the new Colorado implant, Jesse Hanus! Auditions for this series will begin on 4/7, and the entire series will start on 4/14 and end on 5/19. Here are some relevant questions and details:
Auditions?! What? When? And How?
-Anybody and everybody can audition!
-Auditions are intended to be fun, and low-pressure. The purpose is to showcase your dancing for the instructors, and the instructors will choose specific dancers to focus their attention in the weeks to come.
-The audition on 4/7 will focus on social dancing (slow, medium, fast), basics (slow, medium, fast), and a short/fun solo routine. We will rotate partners for each section.
-After the audition – we’ll e-mail everyone who tried out, and let you know who made it in the series
-If the instructors select you, we expect you to be able to attend the series – you were chosen for a reason
What if I didn’t make the cut?
-First and foremost – don’t worry about it, and definitely don’t take it personal. The instructors have a specific agenda, and they chose dancers that are the best fit for that agenda. You’re well loved, valued, and important to Boulder Swing Dance
-Also we want to empower you! The Level 3 class will last from 7:00-8:00, but from 8:15-9:15 the same instructors are going to be teaching a series on “how to become a level 3 student.” They’ll be teaching the things the value most about partner dancing, and they share their best tips and tricks. This class will be open to all level 2 and level 3 dancers.
