    Alesha Zenger at Studio Z has created an instructional DVD for us. This DVD is a tutorial of 3 different basic ballroom hairstyles for your female dancers and is a valuable tool to teach your dancers how to get that professional ballroom look. This video will be free to all who register by June 2nd (this is a 2 day extension).

    You are welcome to sign up for either the Teacher or the Student section. Those who sign up for the Teacher section will receive a fully choreographed Swing routine from Paul Winkelman. This routine can be performed with teams 4 couples, 8 couples or 12 couples allowing this routine to expand or shrink as necessary. I will also teach a choreographic workshop titled,”Making Choices to Create Impact.” After lunch there are 4 additional classes you may select from.

    Those who sign up for the Student section will participate in the 3 hour formation choreography workshop with Karson Denney. Karson will present 4 different formation concepts and help students apply them as each couple will facilitate a section of a developing piece of choreography. After lunch select from the remaining 4 classes to develop your teaching skills.

    We will also be unveiling our new “Bronze International Program” at camp this year. Oskar & Karolina, as well as Shayla Hanks with Rob McShinsky & Peyton Munson have been a apart of this process. These great dancers can help mentor you & provide a visual guide for teaching technique and styling to your students.
