I've had some dance training, but I'm still very much a novice. That was several years ago, and I'm considering trying again. But I had some bad experiences trying to learn. Here's my new plan. Please let me know if you think this is a good way to go about it. The thing I'd like to do now is to skip group classes and just do private lessons maybe for 3 months, until I've actually learned all the moves that would be covered in group classes. And then I would do group classes after that to practice leading different partners with those moves. Maybe I'd take the group class all the way through twice even, if I felt there was more I needed to work on. And then I'd go back to private lessons to learn the next batch of moves for the next group class higher. And then back again to group classes after that. Repeat. That's what I'm considering doing. And I wouldn't want to do any social dances until I felt I could actually dance. I'd use my private instructor to help me learn to dance spontaneously. Group classes don't seem to teach that. And I've had absolutely dreadful experiences being thrown in the deep end trying to social dance with no idea what I was doing. Does that sound reasonable? Thanks.
