MOMENTUM

The blueprint for your
WCS growth



Continue your Swing Literacy journey 

Inside the Bootcamp bubble, people get results. That's because it's not just the Core Modules - it's the intentional blend of training PLUS encouragement, feedback, support, and community - all crafted to produce an experience that motivates, inspires, and pulls you toward your goals.

But here's the problem. When students venture out on their own, progress becomes much slower. People lose focus, get easily discouraged or distracted, and worst case, lose the momentum and progress they built - all because they are no longer in an environment designed for success. 

So we’ve created something to support you in implementing, practicing, and progressing your Swing Literacy skills...

...to help you keep your momentum.

We've
been
listening...

  • You want to take your time to review, absorb, and implement the your Swing Literacy material.
  • You want guidance to continue the progress you started as you integrate your new skills into live social activities
  • You want to feel like you are getting credit for the improvement you make and feel like you are making constant progress 
  • You want a training system to give you a clear sense of focus and direction
  • You want a consistent feedback system to confirm your efforts and course-correct when necessary
  • You want an accountability system to keep track of your progress and keep you motivated
  • You realize the value of the Swing Literacy learning community

The DDP Core Modules were your foundation.

Now we're going to give you the blueprint to build the rest of your WCS house.


What is Momentum made of?











CURRICULUM

Get training in 7 essential areas of your West Coast Swing:

Discovering

Automating

Refining

Exploring

Performing

Work at your own pace through 5 stages of development:

Now that you have the foundation of Swing Literacy, we can cycle back and spend more time diving into each skill with more time.

We can improve your styling and musicality...your partnership connection and social dancing...your spins, patterns, and a whole lot more

...and since you have the fundamentals down, we can help you improve so much faster, with so much less effort.

Plus this time, we direct you exactly what to do to work on each skill, depending on what stage of development you're in of that skill.

And since you know how important it is to use progressive skill development, we take each month’s theme and break it down into stages with projects tailored for each stage and quick self-assessment to help you decide which stage to start in.

What's awesome is that while many of you will be working on different stages of a theme, everyone will be working on the same theme at the same time... so no matter your skill level, you are all a part of the Momentum family.


COMMUNITY

Our online learning community is pretty damn amazing. Swing Literacy students from all over the world sharing a common learning language, pushing each other to step outside of their comfort zones, training ugly, and offer consented, educated feedback. 


Not to mention celebrating successes, sharing inspiration, and leveraging each others' learning experiences... Momentum is the space where this will live going forward - where all the feedback and juicy conversations will be. Where you can hang out with your Momentum family. 


And it starts right away - we set you up with a MoMentor to help you get started and integrated into the community so you can feel supported and welcome immediately! 

 


COACHING

In Momentum, we channel your focus on one theme per month or two, and give you all the coaching, support, and resources you need to complete the project in that theme, at whatever stage of development you're in.

You'll get 2 sets of live coaching calls per month where we dive deeper into the theme of the month and do Q&A on the projects. This will allow us to do more feedback coaching as a group and provide more details on how to take your skills to the next level on the ladder.

You'll also get monthly Westie Workouts: follow-along videos on solo drills to music so you can work on your personal movement and musicality.


CREDIT

In Momentum, you earn credits for completing learning activities and each project-of-the-month. 


This means you have a concrete way to measure your progress that has nothing to do with competitions


Plus, you get credit for your improvement in each skill, based on how much you learn and apply to your dance.


With credits, you can earn access to exclusive coaching, special workshops, personal assessments, and more! 


With Momentum, you figure out where you stand on the ladder of difficulty and start moving up the ladder systematically.  When you get stuck, you know exactly what you need to work on to get your body ready for the next movement.  If you feel stuck in your dance progress of if you feel like you might have missed a few things along the way that make more advanced moves hard for you, check this out!!!

Renee Kusler

Bootcamp exposes you to all the aspects of what it takes to become a great dancer. It’s a mile wide program that gives you a basic understanding of the moves, techniques, and topics. But Momentum is a deep dive into those moves, techniques, topics. Here you get to explore and deepen your understanding of your movements and *how* to achieve the outcome you desire.

Dana Terhune

 What I like about Momentum is that it's more than a class -- it's an approach to WCS that builds on fundamentals in a systematic way. The pre/post videos help me see exactly where I'm stuck and how I'm making progress. And if I'm stuck, the coaching calls and FB videos give the detail I need to move past any stuck point. The combination of information, skill-building, and demonstration is really amazing.

What Momentum members have to say

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is this pricing available?

Enrolment is only open until this Tuesday, July 5th at 11:59pm. Then we are closing the doors to Momentum so everyone can start on the same page, and we probably won't open them again for another 6-12 months. After that, the prices will likely go up, so now's your chance!

What's going to happen in the first month?

Well, compared to the Bootcamp, it's going to feel like a well-deserved break! We're going to use it to give you time to get oriented to the new website, the Momentum coaching calls, and the new Facebook group.

After completing Orientation, your first theme is Effective Practice Habits where we're going to help you get organized to practice more effectively at whatever stage you're in with whatever content you already know (so you don't have to worry about collecting new material if you are feeling overwhelmed).

After you finish Effective Practice Habits, you'll have full access to Momentum where you can dig in and improve your dancing in soooo many different ways! Feel free to jump in any of our modules and focus on something you are passionate about improving in your dancing right now, or follow along with our monthly guided themes and let us guide you on exactly what and when to practice.

How will feedback work in Momentum?

Feedback from M&T will be delivered regularly on the Live Coaching Calls in the form of spotlight critiques, hotseat coaching, tactical troubleshooting, etc. We will be guiding members as they practice their growing feedback analysis skills to leverage others' coaching feedback for their own dancing.

Certain projects involve posting videos in the group, which will include additional feedback provided on individual videos.

Plus, by completing projects and activities, members can earn credits towards exclusive group coaching sessions, private coaching, and personal assessments.

Can I switch from monthly to annual or vice versa?

Yes, you can upgrade to annual or downgrade to monthly anytime.

When will the live coaching calls happen?

Twice a month: Every 2nd and 4th Sunday (11:30am) & Monday (6pm) - Vancouver time. You have access to ALL the calls, we are just offering them two at a time so members in every time zone have a chance to participate live. We are allowing ourselves a 90min window for each call.

What happens to our access if our subscription stops?

If for whatever reason you stop your subscription, you will lose access to all the Momentum content. All the progress you gained will be stored in your Account so when you want to re-start, you will be able to pick up where you left off at the current member pricing.

How will we determine what stage we are in?

Remember each theme is different. At the beginning of each Theme-of-the-month, there will be a series of questions to help you determine which stage you should be working on in that skill, so you can make a guided, educated guess on the best place to jump in. Don't worry, this will be thoroughly explained in the Orientation inside Momentum.
