SLDM Dancer Education Program

Coming Spring 2017

The foundation behind all styles

The SLDM does not promote any one particular WCS style, but instead teaches the common (yet neglected) fundamentals behind all styles. It focuses on two unique elements that are paramount to teaching all physical skills: the developmental progression of skills and the fundamental movement principles of each. 

The Swing Literacy Dancer Education Program is open to 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

The Program consists of only the online module: The Theory Module for Dancers is open to anyone, and can be started at any time. Inside this module are 19 lessons divided into 3 Units.

Each unit contains several lessons, with quizzes required to progress to the next lesson. It is expected that students will spend 10+ hours to complete the module.
