In the Mood to Dance College FAQ'sOur In the Mood to Dance College is beginning January 2019 with semesters beginning in January, May, and September. Our goal is to encourage, nurture, and charish your learning experience by teaching the next generation of dancers and professional teachers with ease, grace, and professionalism. You may have questions about our program and we encourage you to ask by calling us at (919)-791-6136 or emailing us at Office@IntheMoodtoDance.com or even going to our Website at www.IntheMoodtoDance.com.

Here are some of the frequently asked questions that we wanted to share with you...

Is the In the Mood to Dance College for me?

The Non-Dancer: Yes! You do not have to know how to dance, you will learn how! This curriculum is meant to teach you the vocabulary and terminology of Ballroom dancing, moving anatomically through your body, and the communication skills to work with a partner. Move with ease, grace, and learn additional skills in the process to have the option to continue to dance or to teach the next generation of dancers.

The Student: Yes! Do you want a fuller understanding of the movements you are creating? Do you want to gain experience dancing while working with other dancers? If you answer yes, this program is for you. Develop the skills to learn dances faster while gaining the skills to teach, if desired. Break down individual steps/patterns to the most fundamental elements to recreate the movement on your own.

The Teacher: Yes! Develop your teaching skills while learning how to teach and structure Group Classes and Private Lessons, sell lessons and classes without pressuring your students to buy, brush up your teaching skills by learning the correct terminology and language of dance, and tricks to teach technique anatomically with "Move Like a Champion".

Why should I participate in the In the Mood to Dance College?

The Non-Dancer: Learn how to dance in a structured environment with other people working toward the same goals; learning to dance. Fine tune the vocabulary, terminology, and language of ballroom dance.

The Student: Further your dance terminology, dance experience and expertise, or just want to develop the skills to communicate valuable information. Acquire the same information that dance instructors have which will help fill in the gaps in your learning, giving you more details to see the "big picture" of what it means to be a good ballroom dancer.

The Teacher: Get help identifying the common mistakes students typically make and how best to instruct them better. Gain the skills to teach different elements clearer and more precise. Learn new vocabulary for teaching, musical aspects for each figure and dance, how to give feedback to your students, and how to present information precisely and clearer. Develop new methods for teaching and structuring group classes and private lessons and sell without the pressure of the used car salesman approach.

Do I have to become a teacher?

No! This curriculum is for anyone
