Naples, fl is a very special place to live and it certainty has its own vibe and energy.
It's been about 4 months since we moved here with my family and I can certainly say that we have already got our first impression. There are so many great restaurants, white sandy beaches, high end country clubs and luxury boutiques in Naples - all that is a great social outlet for those here on vacation, part-time residents staying here during the season or full-time Naples residents. It does not really matter what category you belong, once you are here, you will surely enjoy living in this wonderful city.
As I am building my clientele at the moment, I noticed that it becomes quite trendy here to hire a dance teacher for a couple or a single person to have a dance lesson in a peaceful atmosphere of their home! And in this article, I would like to share my experience of teaching people indoors and talk about how wonderful such experience could be for couples or singles.
It's obvious that the temperature here during the summer days or even during the fall is quite high and it makes you want to stay inside or just hang out with a Margarita drink by the pool.
Beautiful weather and whole resort type of environment brings lots of relaxation and a habit of "no rush" into your lifestyle. Enjoying themselves in their beautiful homes, sometimes local people feel that they would rather stay indoors and have entertainment brought directly to them instead of going to a dance studio or a country club.
Of course, I am not talking about the majority of people, this is small percentage, but like I said before, this type of service becomes quite trendy! I noticed that some people just want to have a lesson indoors while others just want to make a special date for themselves when they bring a dance teacher to give a quick private lesson inside of their beautiful home.
Luxury of undivided attention
When you teach people in their homes, I must say you feel that you give them a truly private lesson since neither sharing of the floor nor music happening. I am not saying that it is necessarily a bad thing to share music and the floor place while learning to dance in a busy school, all I am trying to say is that teaching indoors sets up a completely different atmosphere during the lesson and people feel that they are truly enjoying themselves being relaxed and feeling more confident about trying learning. And as we know learning how to dance may seems like learning of something that is not always natural or easy at a first try. Private lesson indoors becomes a lesson of truly undivided attention, because there is no destruction and you can see how people are having a good time!
A great addition to a wonderful evening
Private lessons in house is certainly not inexpensive type of entertainment. However, all the benefits which people receive with that - make such activity worth what it may cost them. I had clients who brought me to teach right after they had a special dinner at home. A dance lesson was for them a finale of their amazing evening. I also had clients who were celebrating their anniversary and to accomplish a dream of one of the spouses I was brought to teach Foxtrot. That was a very unique experience for my clients and for me. It was a great pleasure to give people happiness and joy, allowing them to make their dream come true and help them to feel that they finally did something one of them was really dreaming about for a long time.
Quite good progress
I find that people who are inquiring about such service for the first time, have a doubt whether they would learn something or not on the lesson in their home.
This is quite normal fear and based on my experience and I must say that home environment allows to learn.
Of course, I am not talking about the level of progress which student may get when he/she comes to a dance studio. Learning indoors is more like a short-term thing or an addition to a special night but I was able to notice how people was progressing from having no knowledge about a certain dance to a level of a very very beginner.
To conclude my post I must say that it is very fun to learn about the local environment and the clientele, it is very enjoyable to discover interests & preferences of local people. And I am looking forward to learn more!
In response to whose who are thinking about giving yourself such entertainment, I want to say, go ahead, it's worth it and you will enjoy such a memorable experience for many years!
