AVS Teaching Philosophy


“We at Atlanta Varsity Showdown believe in developing a well-rounded dancer by exposing students to multiple vintage dance styles in addition to a strong foundation in those dance forms.  Through this we hope for students to discover themselves in the dance and be able to truly dance what they feel.  We seek for our students to be in touch  with themselves so that they will be able to genuinely connect with another person.  To this effect, Atlanta Varsity Showdown offers both partnered and solo classes as well as encouraging our teachers to teach with partners and individually.

Dancing is a reflection of life, and it should be done with love.  We hope that by the end of the weekend our attendees will love themselves more and know themselves a little better.”
