Dance Weekends Update

Even though we’ve got more family responsibilities now, we still enjoy teaching weekend workshops and festivals in other cities. We love connecting with other dancers around the country and it keeps us on our toes! Here’s a quick update on what we can offer for those who might be wondering:

Rob on his own: Rob can teach solo classes, partnered classes and teacher training on his own or with a local teacher/demonstration partner. Recently he’s taught with Trisha Sewell (as a leader) and Scott Cupit (as a follower) at Swing Time in the Highlands and with Lucy Helena Toseland in Senegallia

Rob and Tina: We’re still happy to teach full day workshops and full weekends as a couple. When you book both of us, you get our toddler as a bonus (she’s very cute). We’re accustomed to teaching with her in the room and so far everyone seems to really enjoy having her in class. If you have someone in your scene that would enjoy helping keep the little one entertained it makes everything a little bit easier for us but it’s not a necessity. If the event involves evening social dances and/or competitions we may need to leave a bit early or divide and conquer but we’ll be there to dance with everyone as much as possible. Other than that our needs with regards to travel, accommodation, food etc are no different than what you would expect for other teaching couples.
