Thank you for choosing the 3rd Person Dance Course!
Welcome to the 3rd Person pattern dance course for levels 1-5 of the UK ice dance test system (As of April 2021).
So many dance videos exist on places such as YouTube but are almost always filmed from the barrier – This can create problems such as subjects being too far away, camera angles blocking steps, poor music quality and generally making the learning process much harder than it needs to be!
I felt it was a needed thing to have these dances – in 3rd person, with all the tips and references you need with high-quality audio and visuals!
Why 3rd Person?
As a coach we teach the dances like this – so it makes sense and is easier to see and feel the dances when viewed from this point of view.
Feel free to use these videos as a way to learn from scratch, jog your memory or aid in all the different areas of each dance. Should you forget anything these videos will always be here to help!
You need a coach to really learn these dances properly. think of this course as a reference to help you learn the details of each dance, rather than the specific technique and character – this must be demonstrated on the ice I believe! That said if you don’t have a coach I’m sure you’ll be able to pick up the steps and have a really good idea of these on your own! What’s most important is that you enjoy dance, and are not left frustrated about any of the details!
