Movement Addict with Movement Addict Alyssa Glanville
https://www.patreon.com/user?u=28233472&fan_landing=true&fbclid=IwAR2iFYs7aF6YI2iCIhhhsLjR24xoZbgXLqcXL8VAF-qM-uYVBExBTXZtm2k
My name is Alyssa Marie Glanville and I’m a professional dancer. Specifically, I teach West Coast Swing and am fortunate enough to travel all around the world sharing information, movement, inspiration, and joy. I love teaching big groups or one-on-one sessions, however I don’t always have the time to work with EVERYONE at each event. Therefore....This platform is your opportunity to work with me! Depending on the tier you choose, you will receive a variety of videos from me. These videos will range from dance drills, light fitness activities, dance choreography, freestyle movement training, and partner and connection training (to name a few.) The higher the tier you purchase, the more videos/more information you get.


Neat Feet Feet with Naomi Hulbert
https://www.neatfeetswing.co.uk/online-courses
Naomi is a 2x UK and European Line Dance Champion. She is recognised for her fancy footwork, impressive syncopations and musicality. Line dancing is also great for your memory. The more you learn, the easier it gets. You can take this away and dance choreographed routines to your favourite tracks.


Robert Royston
https://www.robertroyston.net/shop
Robert is internationally renowned for bringing his wealth of knowledge, charisma, experience, and talent to any project in which he has a role.


Sonya Dessureault
https://www.sonyadance.com/
These are all drills you can do alone or with a friend but entirely designed to do without a partner. While there’s a lot of great content out there from champion dancers, this is the only platform devoted entirely for technical solo work. I give you the tools to check your own work and tell if you’ve done it successfully. I also thought that I would do a discount on my video learning platform for those who can’t go out and still want to train. Hopefully that can help you and me go through this time.


Stephen White
https://stephenwhite.shop/collections/solo-drill-series
Quick and easy drills designed to help you work on your dancing when partners or teachers aren't easily accessible. This series is a low budget alternative to full DVDs for people who may not be able to travel to their preferred instructors, but want something a bit more substantial than youtube. Get excellent instruction for the same price as your coffee! All products are digital downloads.

Musicality Practice! with Katie Schneider
Thursday at 2 PM – 3 PM
One thing solo dancing is great for is practicing your musicality! Dancing musically when you are by yourself is the first step towards good musicality. If you can’t do it on your own, it won’t magically happen under the stress of dancing with a partner. I will guide you through how I approach this type of practice with a variety of music genres. This will be a Facebook Live class, and access to the video will be available for a month after class.
