Strong emphasis on strength and flexibility useful in more than just competitive dance.
Choreographic style gives more skills to put under dancers' belts than just competition tricks, whilst still giving them the ability to use such tricks and other athletic abilities
Ability to teach students to dance with props due to Colorguard training.
I choreographed for several elementary schools, was a member of an all-male dance company, and have been an individual private trainer for over 30 students
Professional, flexible and courteous. Both my kids enjoyed time with Pablo.
I test to see how strong and flexible they are so I learn how far I am able to push this new student. It's important to have boundaries to avoid permanent physical damage or discouragement from going to hard too fast.
I have trained at CF Dance for well over 5 years, at my high school, and received my vocational degree from Fullerton College.
I have also been in two professional dance companies: Vicious Circle Dance Company & Southern California Dance Academy
as for Colorguard, I started in high school and moved up to a professional Colorguard in college.
due to being accustomed to training high school and elementary school students in poorer areas, I try not to be expensive. $11-$12 an hour works for me as long as dancers get to enjoy rehearsal.
In high school, students wanted to join the dance team, so after school I would train these freshman/sophomores so they'd have all the skills they'd need to make it to varsity within the schoolyear, and most of them did.
I have worked with students with innate flexibility and no strength/dance training whatsoever, as well as students that were stiff as a brick before meeting me.
An old student of mine recently went en pointe and graduated high school with a dance tassel.
Definitely make sure they know what they're talking about. If they don't know the muscles they're stretching, they shouldn't be stretching them. Anatomical basics are crucial to dancers health.
Any and all, students should always talk to their teachers about their needs. It helps teachers learn how to individualize their training more to properly meet their demands
