What to look for when critiquing students. How and what to offer.Technique is important. One cannot be free to dance  if one does not have the basic structure.

CONSULTATION SERVICES FOR ELITE DANCERS AND DRUMMERS

This program is for the drummer or dancer who wants to go beyond the level they are at. To excel!

The idea is to open your mind to the possibilities that are available to you and the material available to increase your knowledge about all aspects of the dance. (Remember it is designed around you)
