VBDS is pleased to be able to offer a three-week series of workshops with one of Canada’s top coaches, Gaétan Rouette. Gaétan was ten-dance champion in Quebec and is an adjudicator with Canada DanceSport. Our third, three-week workshop series will focus on head weight. While to some, this may sound like an odd subject matter, head weight is an important factor in balance and lead and follow movement.

“This workshop will cover the technical information and exercises required to achieve a good balance between partners and the different dynamics to create a good down and up-swing by using the head weight in the 4 swing dances (W, F, VW, Q)” ~ Gaétan Rouette

Please note, you DO NOT need a partner to register for classes or workshops. As needed, we will attempt to balance classes with volunteers. As well, while not required, students will be encouraged to change partners as this enhances the learning experience.

Registration will close one-week before the start of classes and if there are inadequate numbers, the class will be cancelled. Your early registration will help determine the viability of this class/workshop. If you want to pay later, pull down the “PayPal” field and change it to “Pay offline”, the reserve your spot. Thank you.

VBDS members can register here.
Non-members can register here.
