Yes, it is common in Rock’n’Swing dance classes that the instructors will rotate partners. The only exceptions are aerials and competition classes.
Rotating partners has a lot of advantages:
- you improve your lead and follow skills,
- you will be inspired by others,
- you learn and benefit from each other’s strengths,
- you meet new people and you can’t fight with your regular dance partner!
All this means you have better and more dance partners to dance with in the dance parties.
If you are only able to dance well with your own partner or a very good partner than there may be parts of your own dancing you need to look at.
In partner dancing there’s usually a leader and a follower. Anyone can be a leader, anyone can be a follower.
Usually a leader initiates a movement and a follower completes it. These roles are in no way gender specific, in fact many people do both, and dancing both roles is often referred as switching.
You will be asked to chose to either lead or follow when you register to a partner dance course. Or you if you are fine with both roles you can choose ‘Both roles are okay’. Depending on the balance of leaders and followers, you might end up leading or following.
We encourage everyone to try both roles at some point, as it’ll greatly improve your dancing and broaden your understanding of leading and following.
The beginners courses (level 1) always start from scratch. You don’t need any previous dancing experience.
All of our courses can be found in myClub under the ‘Registration’ tab.
We let people without a partner from the queue in the registration order so that there are about equal number of followers and leaders (±2). Therefore the myClub might show that the course is full, but is not until [TÄYNNÄ] is added to the course name.
You will get a notification and a bill, when you get a spot in the course.
