What is your primary reason for joining our Smooth Rhythm Dance Meetup?
Learn hard dancing and get some exercise is possible.
Do you know how to Hand Dance, and if yes, how did you learn, for example, 'way back when,' 'on my own,' 'in a class,' etc?
What other dance genres do you dance, if any, i.e., Free style, Hip Hop, West Coast Swing, Step, Ballroom, Swing Out, Hustle, Shag, Salsa, Cha Cha, other Latin Dances, African, Belly Dance, Jazz, Ballet, etc?
I love music and dancing but no hand dancing experience.
Welcome to Smooth Rhythm Dance Academy! If you're interested in contemporary Hand Dance, you’ve come to the right place. We offer professional and innovative Hand Dance & Bop instruction and coaching, by certified instructors, for beginner through advanced dancers, along with workshops and demonstrations for your favorite social or fraternal event. We are an affiliate of the National Hand Dance Association, and of the Smooth & EZ Hand Dance Institute.
Smooth Rhythm Dance is here to assist you in reaching your Hand Dance 'needs and desires.' Our goals are to provide professional Hand Dance & Bop instruction and coaching for your individual skill level and desires. We strive to take your dance experience to a higher level and help you reach your goals in a more efficient and intensive manner while focusing on individual skills and abilities. We understand that one teaching style may be inadequate for all students; some learn better with more detail, some are more visual; some require a more hands-on approach, and some may be fast learners.
To better accomplish our goals, and to give you the most professional and rewarding learning experience, our focus and emphasis is on Private instruction for our Hand Dance and Bop lessons. Although we had much success with our group classes from 2005 thru 2013, we believe this change is in the best interest of our students.
If you're interested in Private instruction, please contact us at your convenience, by phone, text, or email, to find out how Smooth Rhythm Dance Academy can help you and your dance. We are flexible with scheduling and are anxious to work with you.
