CEO & Dance Choreographer
Getty Le - COO & Dance Instructor
I started dancing in 2009 and prior to coming to Dance Amor in 2013 have had in total about 80 hours of private lessons at 2 other dance schools, learning all different styles including Salsa, Bachata, Cha Cha, Rumba, Waltz, Tango, Samba.
I still remember my first time coming to Dance Amor. You would think that after those hours of dancing, when I asked to show what I knew in Cha Cha dance to determine the level I was at, I would be able to at least show the basic dance step patterns, no problems?!!! Well, I was put on the spot, felt really ashamed that I could barely show the basic pattern properly with wishy-washy timing. It was at this time, I got asked by the instructor: "Do you want to learn it properly from the start or do you want me to teach you the way you have been learning? I am happy to teach you either way".I told him that day I wanted to learn it properly & I haven't looked back since.
Within 2 months, I stopped going to other dance schools as I realized that Dance Amor can offer all that I needed to become a great dancer. What attracted to me the most about Dance Amor was it has always been a dance school Adelaide that is about ensuring that you are equipped with the necessity dance tools (i.e., patterns, footwork, musicality, partnership, body movements, turns styling), each at which you can continue to improve and master. Then when you go out dancing, you can choose to use them at will. The better you sharpen and master each one, the more confident you feel and the bigger the growth. The growth that I have experienced in both my dancing & mentality over the last 7 years have been tremendous. From being shy to introverted I am now confident & becoming the new best versions of myself everyday!!!
Through the vision of Dance Amor creating great dancers the shortest period of time,
I have recently witnessed an absolute beginner dance steps who started learning at Dance Amor for only 4 weeks, learned an entire advanced bachata routine in 5 days and performed it on the 6th day. This in the past would have taken me about 3 to 6 months. What I thought previously was impossible has been proven possible. That has had such a huge impact on continuing to push and inspire me to improve myself even more and pass on the knowledge to Dance Amor students.
Now results can be achieved within 45 minutes with performance achieved within 1 week.
I believe in the near future we can get a student to achieve learning dance and perform a routine within 1 day. I look forward to that day!!! More importantly what drive, positive energy and mindset that it will bring to the school, myself and for everyone who is part of it!!!
