Private lessons

Private lessons with David Phillips

$1 a minute, 15 minute minimum

Private lessons give you one-on-one support. You get to work on the specific things you want to work on, at the pace that works best for you.

David studies more than Argentine tango. He studies mind-body methods (such as NLP and Alexander Technique) that help produce understanding and results, and he studies best practices for teaching, coaching, and learning. He wants to help students understand Argentine tango, not merely dance it!

David’s studies of Argentine tango, both nationally and internationally, have included these specific teacher training courses

  • Tomás Howlin, Tango-Learning 1 and 2, 2014, 2015
  • Minnesota Tango Teacher Camp, 2014, 2016
  • DanceAbility International Teacher Certification 2015
  • Caminar Abrazados International Tango Teacher Training in Saarbrücken, Germany 2016-2017
  • ProDVIDA Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, each with High Honors 2016

Why $1 a minute?! Like chair massage?

That’s right. Have you had personal coaching/training sessions in any subject where you thought to yourself, “Yeah, okay, let’s cut the chit chat and get down to work.” Or maybe you were the one avoiding work!

Have you heard someone, or even yourself say, “If I get one good idea, that makes the whole lesson worthwhile.” Well what if you could pay for just that one good idea? If a person could take one good idea and really run with it, then get another, then another. Think of all the benefits building on top of each other.

Now don’t get me wrong, I personally and regularly take two hour lessons from my instructors, because I have that level of energy and interest, and I take notes throughout to capture the ideas we uncover. Even then I’ve sometimes had to say, “You’re piling on too much. Let’s simplify the feedback and work on one issue at a time.”

I would just as soon use my time and your time to give you exactly what you want, as much or as little time as you feel you need or can handle.

My approach is grounded in understanding fundamentals that produce Clear, Consistent, Comfortable, and Creative dancing. We can also work on all the figures you can imagine, always looking to make them successful on the social dance floor.

Shall we book a starter lesson to see how it goes?
