FAQs About Safire's Hoop Dance Performance Training
How long is the course?
The program is 12 weeks long, and completed online, each week you'll gain access to new content and information provided through written text, PDFs, Video Tutorials, and more. After viewing all the content, and completing the assignments, you'll have a one-on-one Skype session with Safire where she can provide you with personalized feedback for improving your performance skills, your demo reel, and your performance acts.
What's kind of information is provided in the training?
In this training I combined all my knowledge of performance to create a course program that will help you develop your skills as a hoop dance performer. Whether you are brand new to the stage or have years of experience under your belt, this course will provide lots of new ideas on the art of performance. Over the past 10 years I have had the joy of performing to people of all ages, backgrounds, and languages. This course will cover a range of topics, from how to choreograph an act, writing an entire show, engaging your audience, coming up with new jokes and show ideas, learning other non hoop props, picking out music, marketing yourself as a performer, developing your confidence, and more. *See the full list below.
Is there a deadline for completing the course?
It is your decision when you would like to complete the assignments in the course. There is no time cap on the course. Meaning if you enrol in the training and something in life comes up and you cannot hand everything in until later, then this is fine. There is no completion deadline, you work at your own pace. However, you are subject to receiving e-mails from me asking why you haven't been handing in your assignments. :)
What kind of assignments are there?
There are several recommended assignments to guide you through the course. These include several written responses to questions, creating a performance demo reel, and writing a choreographed hoop act. Once your assignments are completed you'll get the chance to have a one-on-one Skype session with Safire to discuss your videos, receive feedback, and ask any additional questions you like!
Is this a certification program?
No, this program is not intended to provide you with a certification (unlike my teacher training). You can however share with potential clients that you have taken this course. As well, upon completion of the program and after our one-on-one Skype session, you'll receive a performer package from me in the mail.
Is there a payment plan option?
Yes. You can pay in one payment of $395, make two monthly payments of $199, or in three monthly payments of $135. You should easily be able to pay off the cost of this course in one or two performances.
