    Are you a good swing dancer? Wanna make an extra buck? Can you teach? Cool article which give some tips on whether to go into teaching, what qualifications you need and how to prepare. Comments, anyone?

    Not a bad article. Can't say more then that as I have never taught for cash. However, I have just taught people on the dance floor informally:

    1. You definitely need to know both leader and follower foootwork (By the way it make you a much better dancer if you do. :) )

    2. Jazz classes definitely help.

    3. I don't know about the at least 5 years of dance experience. If I just concentrated on swing I think that I could easily teach in two years ECS for sure.
