Vulnerability, Creativity, and Adaptability
I bought Jardy’s online footwork style course because I was living in an area where I didn’t have access to any footwork style classes in person. I had experience in other styles of dance but my interest in footwork had pique and I was seeking out resources. I am busy – as are so many people – and didn’t have a ton of extra time on top of my work and other training to scour all of the resources out there for quality content. It was lucky for me that not too long into my search, I came across Jardy’s work. It was exactly what I was looking for – a cohesive, beginner-friendly trajectory to start from the ground up in this style. Having been a student in many different capacities, I have experienced a number of teaching styles and find myself selective in what I want to invest into. For that reason, I am always initially cautious in investing my time or money into programming, especially online. However,
Jardy proved quickly to be a skilled and considerate teacher. Often, once someone reaches a certain skill level, it becomes challenging for them to relate to the beginner mindset and create relevant progressions. Jardy has managed to do that while developing a level of skill that inspires many globally.
Even with the limited time I’ve had to dive into the program, I found the progressions to build upon themselves in such a digestible way that I was able to start from scratch and learn the basic steps to feel comfortable having some moves in my pocket on the dance floor when I go out to dance. Because I do other movement, I also have them to incorporate into my general movement practice. One of the biggest benefits of me doing Jardy’s program is the coordination and rhythm that come from it. Having come from a more athletic background, I have engaged in a lot of physical pursuits, but dance is in a class of its own – and one that athletes find intimidating to enter into. It requires more
vulnerability, creativity, and adaptability. These are all benefits that I think taking Jardy’s course would give anyone, whether they have dance experience or no movement background whatsoever
– I feel this benefits all levels. I would definitely – and already do – recommend Jardy’s work to people all of the time! Thanks Jardy, for being rad.
