A while ago I conducted an experiment in online dance instruction via Skype; and after some testing and feedback I think I’ve got it down.
I’ll be rolling out a virtual private lesson service so that I can work with people one-on-one or with small groups from anywhere in the coming weeks.
So to launch the virtual service, I’m offering 6 virtual dance lessons to Dance Nomad readers.
What do you mean virtual?
I mean we’re going to use the wonders of the internet and video conferencing to work together online. Tools like Skype allow us to connect dancers from all over the globe to collaborate, learn and develop skills without having to constantly be in the same place.
I’ll contact the winners directly and we’ll schedule a time together.
How it works:
First… Become a fan of The Dance Nomad on the Facebook page.
Then… Leave a comment on why you think you should get the lesson.
I’ll use Random.org to select 3 of winners and video it so you know it’s legit.
The other 3 winners will be selected based on their comment.
I’ll contact the winners and we’ll get the ball rolling.
I expect that you’ll have the technical things worked out on your side; that means: decent internet connection, dance partner (unless you want to work solo), space to dance, and a web cam setup.
These will be 50 minute sessions.
You have to be a Facebook fan at the time of the drawing to win; so make sure you get on over to the Facebook page and leave a comment.
Drawing is closed. Thanks for all the entries.
