West Coast Swing Teacher Training

In addition to the 8h WCS Intensive, we will offer another 4h of tuition geared specifically to the development of becoming or reconfirming what you know as a West Coast Swing Teacher/Instructor.  The teachers course will be split into 2, 2 hour blocks, one on each day after the Intensive workshops.

Saturday – 5-7pm – Where to start, methodology & terminology

Sunday – 4-6pm – Class annunciation, building & adapting

After the course concludes on Sunday there will be the chance for a limited number to take a 30 minute exam plus 15 minute feedback session to become certified as an EastonSwing West Coast Swing Level 1&2 Instructor.

The exam will be made up of 2 parts. a written theory and practical dance test.  To gain certification with a  complete pass a score of 90% or higher is required.  Applicants scoring 70-89% will receive a ‘provisional pass’ which will require further review classes to gain certificate.  Those scoring below 70% will be invited to retest at another time.
