In the beginning, when a Club was founded, it has a fairly simple structure, which, as it develops, becomes more complex according to the objectives set by the Club’s directors:

The commercial objective (the welfare of employees)
The sports one (create champions)
The artistic (promote creative projects in the area of ​​art).
If the director only pursues a goal, the Club usually has one or two activity addresses. While if several objectives are chosen as important, the system becomes quite complicated and supports several activities at the same time.

For example:

If the Club is oriented towards financial gain, it is normal for it to be a great dance school for beginners of different ages. You can start to take a single coach who masters one or both branches of the dance very well. As the school develops, the director can invite more specialists from those same branches, or introduce other new dance currents in the Club. In this way, the system expands.

 

In the event that the Club director is interested in having their coaches improve the level of the dance, a hierarchy of coaches, a bonus system, some workshops are organized. In this way, the school becomes a pyramid.

Later the director can think about the participation in sports or socio-cultural projects, both competition and commercial or demonstrative. And then new ways of working are created, such as the preparation of own projects or competition programs, the organization of tournaments, the participation in different sports and other organizations.

If at any given time the prestige of the Club and its dancers becomes the most important for the director, then the sport side gains more and more weight and as a consequence, the Club is completely immersed in that area, with all the consequences.

 

Another way to raise the prestige of a Club is by participating in commercial projects, and then the management and production departments are created within the Club.

With the passage of time the director can come to the conclusion that some part of his Club is developing better and faster, creates more benefits, raises the prestige of the Club and is consistent with their interests. So, all the work of the Club can be concentrated in that specific area. In this way the Club specializes.

This is the general vision of the development of a Club.

Any area of ​​the development of the Club can be very promising, that depends first of all on the personal qualities of the director and his predisposition towards one or the other direction.

As a general rule, those Clubs that bet on an original deal in an existing area, or those that create a new address, achieve the greatest development.

Some directors do not care so much about the Club’s own system and its development, as the success of certain dancers. And then the director himself becomes his producer too. In that way, rather he develops himself, makes a career and creates prestige for himself before the Club that is under his command. As a result, the usual thing is that the Club as a system is turned off or dissolved, while the figure of the director acquires the status of producer in the social circles of dance.

 

From within, the system of a Club can be as follows.

The director determines and structures the main branches of the activity. He can also be the head coach. Currently it is very often seen that the director also performs several other functions, judge, choreographer, manager of the staff, manager, producer, psychologist, etc.

In these situations, the theme of the combination of roles also arises.

I know from my own experience that if I see a problem and see exactly how to solve it, I prefer to do it myself than to delegate it to someone else who does not know for sure what my position on that issue is. I believe that this is one of the reasons why many directors do not delegate faculties to their assistants or specialists from other fields to solve problems. However, this is not a very progressive method.

It is true that it is quite difficult to find an assistant who performs the tasks as well as you would do yourself. However, if that helper fully shares your point of view about the work and its results, if you learn quickly and with enthusiasm, then with your help you can do your own work much more bearable and spend more time on other, more creative things, ambitious and that require a higher qualification.

The ability to delegate work is always a very good trait for a successful director.

Why go to a Training Camp and Which International Training Camps are the most famous for Dancers?

Published

on

In addition to daily training, specific preparation for a Competition or for a season is essential for an athlete. Usually, before the competition season starts, there are several Training Camps organized by great dancers or clubs. What is pursued by attending a Training Camp level is to closely observe other couples how they execute their technique and also receive valuable details of the main international coatches in thematic group classes, and in case you choose a particular class, get the «tailor-made» advice of a coach specifically understood in what you want to improve.

The aim of the Training Camps is therefore to help each athlete to become a better dancer through mastery of the technique and learn the key principles of Dancesport from the best teachers.

In recent years, we have seen a significant change in the Dancesport Approach. Currently you have the opportunity to be observed, analyzed and corrected by the world’s leading specialists. You just have to know what you want to improve and which teacher is ideal for you.

A level Training Camp must be well planned, structured. Group classes must touch different aspects and each teacher must contribute that subject or aspects in which it is more specified. The role of the organizer is essential by selecting the most suitable and elite International Coaches Panel. Not only choose specialists in Latin and Standard. There are coatches specialists in pure technique, others in the artistic manifestation, others scan you and tell you clearly in which aspects of the many that there are more lazy and you should improve, or in which dance you are below the others, perhaps because the choice of some figures that are not correct for your characteristics as a dancer. Sometimes the characteristics of the boy as a dancer are not ideal for dancing with the girl with whom he dances or vice versa. This happens because there are different «types» of dancers and sometimes in the couple «he is not for her and vice versa».

This has two solutions: that someone who understands you say it – difficult because it is a delicate matter – or be in the hands of a great specialist who knows how to look for the right figures and the correct execution of them to try to «join the water with the oil».

There are international teachers like Ilya Danilov who is a living Scanner. That is why they call it «ORACULUS». If he wants and you ask him, he can revolutionize your life in an instant. I could tell you: he is not for you or you are not for her. In 1 minute of your dance vision, he will know more about you than you can ever imagine. I could also tell you which figures are not for you and configure a program according to your characteristics. But be careful if you ask for maximum sincerity: you can leave a class confused with him.

It is better that you go with the very clear ideas of what you want to ask the teacher. The 45 minutes run very fast and are very expensive. The best thing is something specific, convey what you need in a specific way in the first minutes of the class. Before you, you must have made a reflection of the most important thing you need and the exhibition begins must be clear and concrete.

If you do not go with the concrete ideas, the teacher will give you a generic class that may be more successful or less, and you will know little by little. It’s up to you that the class is worth it.

A great international coach (not everyone) knows how to do this, but of course, it will not be easy to be offered or offered at the first. It is something that goes out of the ordinary, you will need an approach to that teacher to enter that field.

The normal dates to attend a Training Camp is in summer to prepare the competition season that begins in August-September. Also at Christmas-New Year. But there are other Training Camps at other times of the year that are very interesting to attend.

In a few years, we have moved from a few closed camps, focused on training, to several camps each month with the best teachers and couples from around the world.

So you understand that you can get a good Training Camp. I mention below the pros and cons of a Training Camp point of view of a dancer:

PROS
1. Time saving
You can have lessons with many teachers in the same place. You save money and time, compared to the previous system in which we needed to fly or drive each teacher separately.

2. Increased motivation
You can find a larger group of dancers to train. Your presence will inspire you and motivate you to do better. You will hardly find elsewhere the same adrenaline and energy you get during resistance training in a training camp.

3. Expand your device
You can expand your group of favorite teachers. In fact, it can sometimes happen that I book a lesson with a teacher just because he / she is on the training camp list. But in the end, you can get an unexpectedly surprising lesson. Then you wonder why, until that moment, you have never considered studying with that teacher.

You can also read our other article on how to find the right teacher for you here.

4. You will be noticed
Compared to competitions, the atmosphere in a training camp is generally more relaxed. The people around you have more time and will look at you with different eyes. If you really are a good dancer, but you still don’t have a large audience, during training camps people will notice you and start taking you into account.

5. Make friends
In a training camp, dancers can let others see how they really are in normal life. Teachers and other dancers can sometimes have a distorted idea of ​​you if they only met you during competitions. During a training camp, you have a good chance to turn your enemies into friends.

6. Level up!
It is very common to see a couple improve their level day by day during a training camp. Be it the amount of information, the quality of the lessons or the contagious emotion, the truth is that the training fields help you grow and improve. The truth is that it happens often and that is one of the main reasons why so many dancers attend training camps.

CONS
1. A training camp can be really expensive
A training camp can be quite expensive. If your budget is not large enough to be free-minded and simply take and leave, try to plan ahead. Start saving money!

2. Overprice
The actual price you will pay per lesson may be higher than usual. In fact, most of the time, you will have to pay an additional price that goes directly to the organization … This surcharge allows organizers to pay for plane tickets, accommodation and transportation for teachers.

3. The energy level.
The quality of the private lesson you get can vary greatly. As teachers are working up to 12 or 14 lessons per day. At the end of a long day, your teacher may not be able to give his 100%.

4. It will affect your program
As a training camp is generally not planned for weekends and lasts several days, it can be a problem for those who cannot easily get free time or reorganize their schedule.

5. Contradictory information
The amount of information you are going to get is huge and everything happens in a very short time. This will usually create some problems. Sometimes the information you receive is contradictory. A teacher will say one thing, and the other exactly the opposite. The funny thing is that both things may be true, but it is difficult to combine the information. You have to let the knowledge be absorbed.

In addition, it may not be easy to practice all the knowledge you acquired before starting the next lesson. Therefore, you can easily forget what you just learned.

6. Too easy? Too hard?
Very often you will see that there are different levels of participants, from juniors to seniors, from beginners to advanced. The teacher has to find a way to run a workshop that is interesting for everyone. But, this is going to be a problem for you.

Sometimes, they organize different groups for younger students or for older people. However, sometimes this is not happening and the group lesson ends up not being useful. For example, if you are a beginner and the teacher is playing a topic that is too difficult to understand or, conversely, if you are a high-level couple and the topic is too simple for you, time and money are you investing It won’t be worth it.

Once analyzed what can be useful to attend an International Training Camp, we will mention below the main International Training Camps both WDC and WDSF.

1. THE CAMP – Wuppertal, Alemania

But what makes this Training Camp so good?

Do You Know How Many Hours Should You Practice?

Published

on

In this article, you’ll discover what to consider when planning your practice hours, taking your skill level and goals into consideration.

Practice What You Learn

As with any sport, your time spent practicing is as important as the information you receive from your teachers. It’s unreasonable to expect great results if you neglect training with a coach, but you can neither expect to reach the top position in a competition if you don’t practice further on your own.

This, though, is the only generalized statement I can make on the subject; the following advice is personalized.

Recreational or Competitive

First things first: define your approach to dancing.

Do you dance only for the fun of it? Perhaps you like to attend a few classes per week just as a recreational hobby.  If that is the case, then the program you find at your local dance school is perfect for you. With a couple of lessons per week, you’ll receive basic notions that will introduce you to different dances at your own pace.  You can enjoy time away from your everyday routine.

If you’ve moved further and have begun more regular practice, maybe you’re thinking of participating in competitions in the future… If dancesport is your primary activity, keep reading!

Different Levels, Different Needs

Let’s outline what I mean by the four following competitive stages:

  • The beginner is a dancer who—no matter the age group—is at the starting point of their competitive career.
  • Intermediate is the stage when you’ve danced in several competitions and have started to receive good results. You practice regularly.
  • An advanced dancer dedicates all their time to dancesport, apart from school or work. They’re aiming for very high results.
  • Pro dancers have made dancesport their life—it’s as simple as that.

Beginner 

For the beginner dancer, it’s very important to avoid overload. The body and the mind are not yet ready for a huge amount of technical information or physical hours on the dance floor.  Keep it simple and work gradually.

At first, you mostly need to develop your coordination and learn the basic principles of each dance. Thus, just a couple of hours of dance per day, 3 or 4 times a week is a good starting point.

Estimation: 6-8 hours per week

Intermediate

The intermediate dancer must surely practice more than a beginner.  At this stage, your confidence on the floor makes the biggest impact on your performance.  By now, you should have the correct technique, physical endurance, good floor craft, and a relatively good connection with your partner.

You can only achieve these skills through many hours of practice, including stamina training and specific group lessons intended to make your skills more competitive.

Estimation: 8-12 hours per week

Advanced

For the advanced dancer, there is nothing else but dancing. Of course, you attend school or to work, but otherwise, your focus is on the development of your dance career.

It’s difficult to estimate how much time you should spend practicing if you’re at this stage; it looks different for everyone.  Nevertheless, I can say that you should practice every day, with only one day off per week—ideally about 3-4 hours per day.

Your program should include:

  • private lessons
  • practice sessions
  • stamina practice
  • group lessons

How you use this time and how effective it will be for you is up to you and your coaches.  Ask for suggestions and try to find which kind of practice gives you the best results.

Estimation: 15-24 hours per week

Pro

The pro dancer really needs no suggestions. If dancesport is your life, you basically eat, sleep, and breathe dancing. Everything rotates around it; the schedule of your lessons is the schedule of your day. You eat when you have a break and you sleep when you aren’t in the dance studio.

At this point, what matters most is the effectiveness of the training. Choosing the right kind of practice, working out the correct concepts, and establishing the perfect relationship with your partner are much more crucial than the clocked time.

Estimation:  hours per life

Every dancer has different habits and different needs. Take the time to find what works best for you!
