DANCESPORT CLUB MASTER
Tanssiklubi Master ry is a member of Finnish Dance Sport association. Established in 2010 dance club Master has become one of the most dynamic training clubs for dance sportsmen in Finland and one of the best dance clubs in the country.
Our main purpose is to support dancers in their development and offer high quality training in different forms of dancing. The main dance sport activity and teaching in our club is competitive dancing (Latin and European dances) for children and adults.
Dance club Master is a young and active dance sport organization, which already united the majority of young dancesport members among children and juniors in Helsinki. Our aim is to enable active practice and good results in the art of dance right from the start.
1. CLUB'S PROFESSIONAL SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
During the time of its existence Dance Club Master has gathered and formed one of the strongest teacher's team in the country. This group of professionals has trained and brought up numerous professional dancers during their careers. Our tight entry policies and criteria ensure that only the best available trainers and teachers join us. Throughout the history of our club's existence through harsh training and a lot of experience some of our students have become part of our staff as well.
2. TEACHING AND TRAINING METHODOLOGY
Our team of teachers work according to a mutually shared teaching program. Specially designed methodology, which has been created by our club’s leader, ensures that students who take part in the program get better results faster at all stages of their dancing and all levels of training.
Teaching technique is based on the development of physical attributes that a dancer will need at different stages of his or her development. This teaching method also includes practice that advances skills and abilities, which are required in order to execute successful dance choreographies.
In addition to learning dance movements and choreographies, the physical condition is greatly improved in the learning process. You learn to feel and use every part of your body, develop flexibility, memory, coordination and a sense of rhythm.
