MARIO ROBAU JR. Intensive Dance & Instructor Training

The only Intensive in New England for 2018

** 12 hours of the best dance training available**

Polish Home, 9 First Street, Windsor Locks, CT

June 7-9, 2019

**** Do you wish to excel beyond “The Average Dancer”? ****

Intensive Workshops – Going on 20 years and continuously evolving. Three days of teaching you HOW to make up your own material, HOW to create your own footwork/syncopations, HOW interpret music, HOW to phrase, etc, etc … just not trying to mimic what others offer.

The success and popularity of these “Intensive Dance Training” weekends cannot be overstated. This weekend is a must for anybody who wishes to be an excellent social dancer, a competitor or instructor. Learn how to progress from just repeating moves and patterns, to actually dancing. Learn the fine points of Leading, Following, Syncopations, Musical Interpretation and other techniques that will separate you from the majority of dancers on the dance floor. Designed for dancers that are above the “True Beginner” level.

Limited to 15 Leaders and 15 Followers. Singles are fine. We do not “Pair” people up, but just keep the same number of leaders & followers and rotate. * NOTE - I do save a few additional spaces for local instructors. I may or may not choose to fill those extra spots.

You will be videotaped at the beginning of the weekend on Friday, and then reviewed on Sunday Afternoon, providing the weekend runs on time. You must attend the entire weekend. NOTE – If you are not available to be at the Polish Home by 4:30PM on Friday, and cannot stay until the end of the workshop on Sunday, you will miss valuable information. There is no way to attend one section or one day … all or nothing.
