we have just to have two coaches in one style of dancing...one focuses on the feet the other improving the top line. The coach that we have for the feet, never promotes the topline as he feels it comes from having a strong foundation, which he may be correct but when you are in the early rounds they don't look at footwork (so I am told).


A good judge can read your footwork from your frame and movement.... no need to look down Wink

that may be in standard but not so in New Vogue, our footwork is quite good but our top line is weaker...not sure if it because you are not connected...and do lots on your own.

friends of ours were having lessons with a new teacher tonight, he is a young man but very technical, I think he will suit them very well, normally with our coach they can get quite heated with each other, but on the week-end they will have lessons with someone else. In total they have instruction with about six different coaches. that would put me into a head spin, to get so many different instructions  Roll Eyes

this young man turned out to be Davide tonizzo, we hope to have some lessons with him next year once the leg is better

this was raised in the costs topic.

The question can be phrased two ways (note these pertain to a single dance style and to a long-term relationship, not a one-off visiting superstar):
A. Is it a good idea to work with multiple coaches at the same time

B. Should you change coaches and if so, how frequently?

thus,
A. I'm a one-coach girl Smiley  IMO if you have two coaches one is (in general) either better or suits you better.  OK there may be some areas where the other is but I don't hink its worth it to have conflicting information.

B. OTOH I do think its a good idea to change coaches but again for me this occurs very intermittently - a matter of several years when its apparent that you have reached 'diminishing returns'.

I think it depends on the goal of the coaching. For example, at one point, even though I had one main teacher, I was also taking lessons with a few others at the same time.  The main teacher for most stuff, but a second ( a guy with a hiphop background) to teach me body rhythm, a ballerina to help me with spins and hand/arm styling, etc.


And yes.  I think that, when one reassesses her/his goals periodically, a change of coaches should be at least considered, even if it's immediately dismissed.  One should always be as sure as possible that her/his coach is a good fit.Smiley
