I think it starts by debunking the pre-existing paradigm that real change takes months and years to happen.  Real change in ballroom dancing can be achieved in minutes, not hours or years. 


I hear the father of the Body School used to say it takes 10 years to get good, 9 years where you make it difficult for yourself, 3 months where you realize it sure can't be that difficult and then you learn to dance. He would then continue to say "how long do you want it to take?" if the student said more than 9 months then he would ask "how many lessons per week" then they would give him a number. He would then say "why don't you send me a check ever week with the total of the lesson price and when you have reached the point that you are ready to learn to dance, call me and we can start the lessons in person."

I think one of the reasons people think it's hard to find a good coach is because they believe real change and improvement cannot happen in 30-minutes.  They all believe it takes years.  So they listen to one coach who conveniently tells them to practice some technique for a few years and eventually they'll get it.  Then they go to another coach that gives them the same time line. 

He would also say that when you learn principles your world will change in a moment. He also said to not buy into the 30 year plan as that plan is for the teachers that don't know enough to teach the principles and have people see the deeper meaning of them each time.

If your dancing doesn't drastically change and improve at each lesson, you've got the wrong coach for you.

Totally agree SG

I've gone on to teach this methods to two doctors who both believed their knees and hips were beyond repair.  Three months later, going against everything Western medicine proclaimed to them, they were completely fixed.  Not to mention, they were both completely baffled because their knowledge of science and medicine could not explain how they themselves were cured.   

How wonderful to read that SG. Hopefully one day doctors will prescribe dancing instead of putting people on pain medication and have people have unnecessary operations.

I live in hope!

The father of the Body School developed it due to his wife having bad knees and back using the Traditional School of Thought.

Some top dancers have found the Body School because of looking for a way to continue to dance. Some injured dancer also find the Body School after a desperate search.

It is a shame that this amazing information is so difficult to get to. Many professionals feel that it is too easy and is sure can't be that simple. They also fear that it will not provide an income. They don't understand the saying that one of my teachers often say "don't let the simplicity fool you into believing it is easy and no work"

Sounds like the comment of dancing too high is a symptom, not the issue itself.  If you try to lower, like you said, it would be disastrous. 

Having a master teacher, or someone trained to find the cause of the issue, really helps in cases like this. 


I am sure that it is. I would really like to have a few ore ahhhh moments  Shocked

Is it possible for you to travel out of the country and take some lessons with a real master teacher, and not just the self-proclaimed ones?  By that, I mean those that were in the world finals and created others, almost from from scratch, that are now in the world finals? 


well if we can we certainly will head that way, currently we go often to Europe as "v: (Husband) has family there and we try to get back to see them, so they remember who Opa is  Cool.

Having discussed this on another thread, I often get told that I am not in time with the music and yet I am sure I am listening to the music and try and dance to the nuances particularity for the Australian style of dance NV which uses phrased music. I don't have that problem when dancing International STD. except apparently in VW where I can pick up speed on the change step. recently when we did get out of time whos problem is it to get back into time? it was pointed out to me and I tried to follow better his timing.

Men and women hear the music differently, and if you have an added layer of counting to the music, and then stepping to the count, that difference get exaggerated to the point that one of you will look like you are not on time.  Timing, direction, power and steps: if you leave that to the man, if ever you're off time, it will be the man's fault.   Grin

so true rather he get in trouble than me Tongue

Before starting with the Body School of ballroom, I was told I would never dance again.  I had no cushioning left in my feet, my knees, ankles, and hips were diagnosed with arthritis which required injections regularly to loosen up, and my arches had collapsed. 

The Body School not only fixed all of that, it improved everything.  There are alternatives out there, and it comes from a very deep understanding of how the body works, and I'm sorry to say, there's only one school of thought in the ballroom world that incorporates that knowledge into the dancing.  I've gone on to teach this methods to two doctors who both believed their knees and hips were beyond repair.  Three months later, going against everything Western medicine proclaimed to them, they were completely fixed.  Not to mention, they were both completely baffled because their knowledge of science and medicine could not explain how they themselves were cured.
