SLDM Dancer Education Program

Coming Summer 2017

Looking for an organized, comprehensive, intensive WCS training program?

 

The SLDM Dancer Education program is aimed specifically at experienced dancers who: 

  • consistently seek growth and personal knowledge
  • have a feeling there’s more to WCS than what they have learned
  • would like to accelerate their learning
  • appreciate the necessity of a strong foundation, and realize they are missing it
  • have no particular interest in teaching and are only interested in studying the dance

 

SLDM Dancer Education Certification

Dancers can work towards certification in the SLDM Dancer Education Program by accruing 3 credits: 1 credit for the Swing Literacy Intensive, and 2 credits for the Theory Module for Dancers.

The Swing Literacy Intensive

This is an OPEN LIVE WORKSHOP offered at select conventions and workshop weekend. Anyone can attend; the only pre-requisite is familiarity with the basics. This is an active workshop that includes progressive skill building, drills, modifications, experiential learning, feedback exchange, and group work. Due to the nature of the content, level segregation is not required, so all levels learn together. Attendees will earn 1 credit toward their SLDM certification. Visit the event’s website for registration details. Interested in hosting an open-to-all Swing Literacy Intensive in your area? Contact us for details

The SLDM Theory Module for Dancers:

This is an ONLINE E-LEARNING course you can start at home, now, and work through at your own pace. Inside this module are 19 lessons divided into 3 Units. Each unit contains several lessons, with quizzes required to progress to the next lesson.
