DAY 1: Presentation to ALL kids involved in the program. Give a short speech describing what ballroom dance is, explaining how it is great for fitness but also for musicality, etc.

The same day, DSAB will arrange for an amateur couple from the dance community to come and perform for you. If you have a particular couple in mind, that’s great, just discuss that with the DSAB officer and we can arrange it.

DAY 1 – 2: Explain how the man is the leader and the woman is the follower. Explain the basic posture and frame used throughout all the dances.

DAY 2 – 8: Continue the instruction from day 1, progressively introducing the basic steps of different ballroom dances.

I just wanted to say thank you sooooo much for coming in. Angela was amazing and the kids had such a wonderful experience. I know how difficult it is to control and teach 200 kids at a time and she did an amazing job of it. We will definitely look forward to having you in next year and will spread the word about what an enriching experience our kids had to other schools.

It was truly a pleasure to work with both you and Angela.

It was a pleasure having you guys in! The kids really bought in and enjoyed it – as I mentioned we would be interested in getting you back next for a new style of dance for the kids to learn.
