Peter is an expert, especially in international style ballroom dancing. I learned so much from him. Because of his instruction, I passed five bronze and three silver medal tests.Jun 20, 2018Peter Kadel's Ballroom Dancing's reply
Thank you kindly. Best wishes.
Regarding Peter's lessons, I always found them to be very informative and helpful in my ongoing attempts to learn the International Style of Ballroom Dancing. He really knows his subject and always delivered a lesson with lots of detail, patience and added humor, which was a bonus!Jun 10, 2018Peter Kadel's Ballroom Dancing's reply
Thank you. Good students will seek out good teachers. Thank you. Peter
Peter is very knowledgeable about ballroom dance and has an easy, encouraging style of teaching. The student learns how to dance well and with enough knowledge to understand what he/she is doing and why. Peter is able to identify why something is not working and offers guidance to correct the problem.Jun 7, 2018Peter Kadel's Ballroom Dancing's reply
Thanks Scott. You're the ideal dance student and will 'go far in your competitions and in working on your bronze, silver, gold and open competition work. Peter
Expert knowledge of the ISD technique and standards of performance. A teacher of teachers, past competition judge and qualifier of those wishing to judge. Dance teacher for the Lake Placid Olympic ice dancers. Wonderful dance performer took me to perform at various civic events and local dance studios. One of the most enriching and grounding dance experiences a student could have.Jun 10, 2018Peter Kadel's Ballroom Dancing's reply
Thank you, the pleasure was all mine. It was lots of fun dancing with you! Keep dancing and stay well! Peter
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Unlike some of the larger studios, when you come to me, you never have to worry about being lured in by promises of a free or discounted first lesson, only to find yourself subjected to high-pressure "upsell" tactics designed to get you sign expensive long-term contracts. With me, there are no contracts to sign.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I start by visiting with my student, and exploring their needs and wants, their current level of proficiency, and their interests. My approach from there is individually tailored. In terms of wedding dances, I tell couples that I am on their wedding dance committee, and their input is welcome. I allow couples to be part of the choreography.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a certified teacher of the Imperial Society of Dance Teacher in London and the USA. Many of my students went on to become dance instructors themselves. I taught for many years for Arthur Murray's Schools of Dance, and received many awards. I have a Licentiate Degree in the Viennese Waltz, and have lectured on the subject, as well as organized Viennese Balls. I teach all the major dances, including Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, Swing, Cha-Cha, Rumba, etc.
