How will this course help you?

When teaching lifts, many educators just teach an individual lift. They don’t teach how to lift. This means that dancers have a very limited experience in partnering and, if asked, wouldn’t know how to create lifts on their own. In our course, we fill that need. We share with you HOW to lift, not just how to do 1 lift. Once you have finished the course, you’re going to know the foundation for lots of different types of lifts, so that you can teach them to your students and really make them your own.
