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.

After many years as a professional modern dancer, and 12 years as an Argentine Tango dancer and teacher, I wanted a change. Someone directed me to West Coast Swing, and I was hooked. Due to my previous training, I have advanced relatively quickly as a WCS competitor, and began teaching classes at the insistence of other dancers in 2014. I currently teach with my competition partner, who like me, has extensive experience as a dance teacher. We emphasize flow and partner work as much as possible in our lessons, and prefer to have our students moving, rather than lecturing to them about concepts.

When I started my English lessons with Paula I considered myself a weak reader, and writer. Paula opened a huge door for me, guiding me through the material, and answering all my questions. She listened wholeheartedly, and tailored the lessons to support my needs. She's supportive, compassionate, kind, and incredibly intelligent. I would absolutely recommend Paula as a teacher. She won't let you down!

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.
