Join our FREE Membership area
It's easy.. just click on the bar in the top right hand corner which says SIGN UP / LOGIN and create yourself a login using your Email address and a handy password of your choosing.
Here's some FAQs about our membership
Why should I sign up?
We know your email address is precious and you don't want to give it out to just anyone.
That's why we've created a simple Members area for anyone (especially Social Dancers) to access a few pages of useful information we don't give out to everyone.
We also NEVER sell your data or pass it on to anyone, it's purely for us here at The Dance Guru to maintain our site and connect with our members
What can I find there now?
Links to our members only Secret Spotify playlists
Links to our members only secret Youtube playlists
Tips on Social Dance Etiquette
Access to a highlighted selection of our dance videos
Our Members Chat & Connect area where you can get to know other like-minded dancers
Plus we are working on adding a few more things over time... If you have any suggestions for things you would like to see, please drop us a line!
What about paid membership, do you offer this?
We do, but only for Dance Teachers or soon to be Dance Teachers. (See plans here)
Thinking of becoming a Dance Teacher? Sign up for our FREE Pre-Bronze Dance Teacher Plan which is also FREE forever.
If you want to upgrade to a paid Dance Teacher Membership in the future, you can, whenever you are ready. Our Dance Teacher Memberships follow your levels of experience as you progress in teaching and include exclusive support groups, lesson plans, live Q & A sessions with the Dance Guru and enhanced discount codes.
As a rough guide:
Pre-Bronze teacher = Those thinking of teaching social dance, those completely new to teaching social dance
Bronze Teacher = a Social Dance Teacher with up to 3 years teaching experience, especially those on our Level 2 & Level 3 Dance Teacher Courses
Silver Teacher = a Social Dance Teacher with up to 3 to 5 years teaching experience, especially those on our Level 4 & 5 Dance Teacher Courses
Your site login (email & password) for the FREE Members area will also be the same for any Paid Plans you sign up to. In order to see any of your Members only pages you need to login whenever you visit our site. If you visit our site without signing in you won't be able to see your paid subscription pages.
Will you send out lots of emails?
"I hate getting lots of spammy marketing emails, will you be sending me these?" Actually NO.. we hate them too! And we're not that great at marketing as we're too busy teaching our courses and supporting our site members with cool activities.
We believe our students & members are fully capable of self-service on our website and will login when they need to get information or access their members pages.
We will only send you a monthly newsletter to keep our members up to date with new things on the site.
Connecting with other members
The Dance Guru politely asks everyone to remain polite & helpful whilst interacting with other members. Anyone found to be abusive or acting in appropriately will be removed as a site member and any paid plans cancelled
What are Groups?
As we build our community we will be creating Members Groups. These will be based on special interests, level of membership, event activity, dance style etc. If you feel we need to add a particular group then just drop us a line. Members can be part of multiple groups, e.g. the 'Salsa' group and the 'Pre-Bronze Teacher' or the 'Kizomba' group & the 'All Members' group etc.
Only The Dance Guru can create a group, but members can request to join and leave a group as they wish. Some groups are specifically for members sharing the same Teacher Plan e.g. Pre-Bronze, Bronze, Silver, so if you leave the paid plan you would be removed from that particaular group, but you can remain in any of the other groups not related to a specific paid plan.
