Inspired by the dance classes in London (or something like that) thread.

Never occurred to me that the etiquette around requesting dance lessons is different from country to country.  Wow.  In the Us, you call and make an appointment.  Even really good teachers/studios, you call and make an appointment.  Some appoitnments are harder to get than others, but still.  All you have to do is call or sometimes book online.

So question to those who've traveled to foreign countries for coaching ... how did you get in?  Call and ask?  Use personal networking?

And how much do you feel that your level impacts your ability to get coaching?  And are lessons affiliated with competitions a good way to get easier access to big name teachers?   Or are group classes a better way to start?

I sought advice from local coaches who to contact when overseas. It is always best to come with a referral. It gives the overseas coach to ask questions about the couple so they know a bit about you before you get there.
