What people say…
Neither of us have had a one to one lesson before and it was really incredibly insightful and helpful. Simons teaching style is one of encouragement bringing out our strengths and individuality whilst working on our weaknesses to improve our overall dance style and technique.
I took a private lesson with Simon in order to improve my connection as a follower in Lindy. During the 1-hour lesson we went through the most relevant connection points and techniques and thanks to some really connection-tailored exercises I felt that I made immediate progress.
I wanted to improve my Balboa following for social dancing so I booked a private lesson with Simon. I had taken some group classes before the lesson, but I wanted to focus on technique and make sure I wasn’t developing any bad habits. Simon did a fantastic job of running through all of the basics and he gave me lots of really good advice on frame, weight and positioning. He was excellent at quickly spotting where I was making mistakes and explaining how I could improve. The things he taught me were really helpful and I would highly recommend Simon’s lessons to any dancer looking to improve.
