The Solo Practice Guide for Ballroom Dancing

Is this Guide good for beginners?

Yes! Practice is important for dancers at any level. The Solo Practice Guide for Ballroom Dancing is designed to work and grow with you. So whether you’re just getting started or have been dancing for years, this guide will help you build an effective solo practice. 

What kind of results can I expect?

When I applied the guide’s concepts to my own solo practice, I saw almost instant results. I understood my choreography better, my technique improved, and even though I was practicing on my own, my connection with my dancer partner grew stronger! I also started to feel more confident in my dancing. 

To top it all off, after placing 5th out of 7 at the World Championships in 2017, I returned a year later and placed 1st out of 11 couples! That’s right, only a year of applying these solo practice strategies, I took home a World Champion title

I’m so busy. I just don’t have time to practice. How can the Solo Practice Guide help me?

I get it! I work a full-time day job, I write for my own blog plus other websites, and I have two dogs at home who need their mama. That’s why an entire chapter of the Guide is dedicated to figuring out when and how long to practice in a way that fits your life and schedule.

I already get homework from my teacher. How will the Solo Practice Guide make a difference for me?

The Solo Practice Guide for Ballroom Dancing is a GREAT tool to supplement and enhance the practice homework you get from your teacher. It will show you how to build a better structure around your practice homework and how you can keep your teacher involved in what you work on outside of your lessons.

Is the Guide only useful for certain styles?

The Guide can be used for practicing all four styles of ballroom dance – International Ballroom, International Latin, American Smooth and American Rhythm, as well as any other partner dance really!
