Learn to dance with Ferlyn

My History of Swing Dance:
I have been teaching ballroom for over 12 years. I have experience in varied street and self-taught techniques in Waltz (Traditional & Viennese), Tango (American & Argentine), Cha Cha, Foxtrot, and Latin Ballroom (Salsa, Rumba, Samba, Bachata), just to name a few. My training is mostly through self-taught methods and passed down generational methods taught through mentors and cultural organizations. A few video credits can be looked at on my profile!

My Teaching Method:
I assess each students' levels, knowledge and styles of learning, determine the best learning paths to incorporate into the lesson and bring a "natural movement" approach of training and education.

With my method, this is to provide a collaborative & supportive environment as well as actively develop a person's life, culture and well-being. I strive to take a step further and deeper within the mind of the person who is learning dance and find one's "True

We are just starting. My granddaughter has some catching up to do because she is starting at 8 years, and she enjoyed her first lesson with Fergie very much. Fergie seemed to know just how much to teach her to make her best start.

I love to spread that excited smile that can come from nowhere else than swing dancing. I teach Lindy Hop, Charleston, East Coast, and Collegiate Shag. With just a little enthusiasm to learn, inspiration can be pulled from everywhere. Even though the eyes may be on the moves, I emphasize that form, connection, and direction are the foundation of it all. But my ultimate goal is to free people up to have fun though listening to the music and improvising with another person.

I have taught swing since 2009 - both to individuals and to groups. We will cover single-time swing and develop a routine of many connected moves. Within a few lessons, a student should have enough confidence to execute a routine fluidly. After the basics, the student can add some east-coast and west-coast swing moves if desired.
