Country Swing Instructor Summit

Mesa, AZ

Country Swing Instructor Summit


Country Nomads is excited to be bringing together instructors from across the United States to learn together in the second bi-annual Country Swing Instructor Summit.

Summit Instructors: Gabriel Dubois and Dance with Danya

You should be able to leave this weekend summit comfortable teaching a country swing private, group, and bar lesson, bringing your own personality into it, and confident in your ability to answer questions and teach this incredible dance.

The focus of this summit will be to work on the timing of Country Swing: reviewing 3 different timing variations and where the music (BPM) and moves tie into the timing variation. There is also a heavy focus on Beginner, Intermediate,  moves and progression, a review of what each move is called within the Nomads Method (regional names vary). Instructors will get to run through the Nomads Method syllabus for group and private lessons, watch a group lesson be taught, and have small workshops, small Q&A sessions, and recaps plus more throughout the weekend. 

In addition to in-person group, small group and 1-1 workshops and lessons you will also be able to take home: 

  • Beginner move list and progression in order (written syllabus)
  • Google Drive Folder with quick overview instruction on basic three, spin & dip with timing
  • Bullet point of private lesson overview
