the FORMULA ...

I always feel lazy and no mood to conduct this particular class. Cos the attendance is never good enough. Some blame it to the timing ( 4pm ), and some blame it to the instructor ~ ME.

FYI, i always like to pick some nice songs and do some nice choreography for it. But at the end of the day, it seems that it's not working. So i went to check with the GX coordinator on the member's feedback on my class. Apparently, some of the members felt that my class is a bit too hard to join, due to the choreos that i did ( normally 12 x 8' per class ). So i thought maybe it's time for me to cut down the steps and replace it with simpler ones.

Ever since i simplified the choreos, the attendance has been increasing. From only 5 or 6 at the beginning to almost 20 pax per class now. I am very happy to see the progress, and i finally got the ideal FORMULA to conduct that class :

Less steps = More members


But this is only for that class lah. Cos i know, members from others classes ( which always hit the head count quota) still preferl to do all sorts of MV look-alike steps, with the Diva attitude, of cos. ;p

  9. can't say making own choreo is easier, in a free style class you have to observe the limit of each member and plan choreo on the spot so that everyone can follow and same time it's tough enough to makes members feel achieving.

    i would say for planned classes like LM, the hard part about choreo is that you have to memorise it and slight mistake can be easily spotted. as for Danny, planning the choreo is headache because you'll never know who will come into the class, so even if planned still he have to change it in the middle of the class sometimes.
