Hello Advanced Followers!

You may have noticed the recently posted Leaders Opportunity. Well have no fear, we’re setting something similar up to help out leaders.

Now the thing about leaders is that their needs are very different. Early on in their dancing, they have a slower learning curve than followers and there are some things that they have to learn with time, practice and lots of social dancing time. Once they’ve reached the 1.5 level though, with the right motivation and hard work, we can really help them to sky rocket.

In setting up this opportunity for Advanced followers, our goal is to:

  • Encourage and motivate “young” leaders
  • Nurture their abilities to help them move up in experience level
  • Teach them to properly care for their followers
  • Motivate more leaders to keep dancing once they’ve started
So similarly to the Leaders Opportunity:

Advanced followers: GET PAID TO LINDY HOP!

We want to offer a special LEADER INTENSIVE WORKSHOP. It will be a 2 hour workshop that will cover 1.5 level material for leaders and the students will be dancing with ADVANCED followers. That means YOU. The workshop will cost double what workshops usually cost – $40 for 2 hours instead of $20. Why the extra price tag? We are going to HIRE EXPERIENCED FOLLOWERS TO DANCE WITH “YOUNG” LEADERS.

That’s right, make $20 for every 2 hour workshop in which you lend your expertise!

This is a great opportunity for the leaders because they’ll be able to learn more quickly, and it’s also a great incentive for them to work hard on their dancing.

So not only will you make a little pocket money, but you’ll be encouraging the wonderful leaders who are new to our dance community. How great is that?

***This opportunity will also be open to men who are advanced level followers; your sex does not matter.
