Grow your Swing Dance Scene Workshop
Author: SD in SD :: Posted: Tue 03/17/15 2:51 pm
Want more people to dance with?
Join us and find out how...


Attend a free class taught by Andrew Sutton on "How To Grow Our Dance Scene"? Soon, Swing Dancing San Diego will be offering more classes & dances and we want to have the dancers to keep it all going for all of you!!!

We are scheduled to work with Andrew from 2:00-4:30 on Saturday, March 28th. The location will be at our Stanford Studio:
7275 Stanford Ave
La Mesa, CA 91942
*** If we have an overwhelming RSVP number the location will be modified accordingly.

We are hiring Andrew Sutton to help teach us some fun ways to drastically grow our dance scene and Andrew says "the more people who attend, the faster your scene will grow". The class is paid for by us so it is free for all of you!

The only requirement is that you are someone who would like to see our dance scene grow. That is right, this class is NOT just for teachers and organizers. If you want our dance scene to grow, join us on March 28th from 2:00-4:30 at 7275 Stanford Ave / La Mesa, CA 91942

The material Andrew is sharing with us was something he learned from Scott Cupit, co-owner of Swing Patrol - the largest swing dance company in the world, which took their average student numbers from 150 in 2009 to 280 in 2010 to over 500 in 2011 (and that is just in London, their smallest and newest dance scene... they are even bigger in Australia). Scott has given Andrew permission to teach some of his ideas to us!

During the first 30 minutes we will play some games while we are waiting for those who are running a few minutes late. Please arrive during the games portion so we are all there and 100% ready to go when class starts.

The actual workshop will be 1 hour and 30 minutes but it might be a good idea to plan for the class to take 2 hours (in case there are any technical difficulties that slow things down as we will be using technology to skype with Andrew and technology has glitches).

Can't wait to grow the scene with you all!
