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

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.

I have taught ballroom dancing in a social class lesson setting for only half a year. Many of the students that have attended my lessons have gone to develop a strong interest in continuing their exploration and desire to dance. I am proficient with the East Coast Swing, Jive, and Lindy Hop dances. I will make sure that the students are able to move to the music with the correct timing, have good posture, connect with their partner(s), and execute the dance moves. Whether you are an individual who has some prior experience to swing dancing or a newcomer, I would love the chance to show you the fun in dance. I am so excited and hope to work with you!

Mr. Wang's teachings made impact on my son's trumpet skills in just five lessons. He worked diligently with my son to improve on his weak points and gave him excellent tips to be better with his instrument. He encouraged him along the way and his support has already made my son a better trumpet player.

Mr. Wang is an excellent teacher. He focuses on the fundamentals and really works on the important details. He helps set goals and work toward them each lesson. The experience with Mr. Wang has been great.
