Students of all levels are encouraged to take advantage of a coaching session with our visiting coach, Dan Rutherford!
Whether preparing for competition (such as the upcoming Metropolitan DanceSport Championships) or hoping to improve one’s overall experience on the social dance floor, adding a coaching to your dance lesson is a great way to boost your dance skills! Also, students preparing for performances (such as Astaire’s All Stars or September’s Showcase) can benefit from the “third eye” to tweak a routine to bring it to perfection. Or, opt to have Dan choreograph a new piece from scratch, specially-created just for you to highlight your strengths & challenge you to become a better dancer!
