I am taking an intermediate east coast class at a studio. We have been learning about one new move a week. Last night, instead of teaching us anything new, he strung a lot of the moves together into a "nice" pattern. So we do a tuck, CBR, sliding doors, inside turns and other assorted things, but in his order. He says that it is really good to be able to go out on the dance floor and have a series of moves that make you look good. Well, I thought we all looked like robots, doing the same thing in syncronation. I am also disappointed that he never addresses anyone's techniques. Even if someone is doing something completely off, he just stands off to the side and lets us continue to practice.... it is like he wants to keep everyone happy so they will continue on with the classes. The problem is that I am really having fun in the class, the other students are all great and I don't know where else to go to learn more east coast. I am just disappointed that we aren't learning what I want to learn. My dh and I take have already taken private lessons for west coast and now are doing so for salsa so can't afford more privates.
