What makes Bill's instruction unique?
Bill believes that to become a great Lindy Hopper it is first important to thoroughly master the fundamentals. His workshops help all levels of dancers become more aware of how their body works, how to use it to communicate and more fully express music and connect to another person. You will not just learn "the rules", but you will understand how technique really applies to your dancing. And how to differentiate between "styling" and "technique". Bill's unique approach to teaching will not only make you a better social Lindy Hopper, but you will learn techniques that will apply to everything, including Blues & Balboa. No matter what your level, Bill's classes will give you an abundance of information to move your dancing up a few notches!
