SWANKS MISSION

to expose one of the greatest partner dances in the world, West Coast Swing; to make it easy to learn; to make fitness more than just burning calories; give them something amazing without them even realizing it.. turn this into something much bigger… 

 

OUR VISION

We are one company, one team with one purpose ~ to provide a superior dance-fitness program that embraces people around the globe and “gifts” them the miracle of partner dancing!

Hi You,

My name is Kellese Key, the creator of Swank Dance Fitness, and I am thrilled to welcome you to our Swank Family!!!

The dances inspiring Swank are called West Coast Swing and Carolina Shag.  In 1997, the fusion was labeled SWAG [SWing + shAG] and quickly become the International Favorite!!! Notorious for being the “Most Addictive” partner dance out there and yet, also has a reputation for being one of the hardest to master.. NOT WITH SWANK!!!

 

We will take you back to the fundamentals and give you a friendly  “reminder”.. “refresher”..  of when we were kids....  Using repetition as our friend, I’ve created a format to be used as a workout.  Finally, a fun way to stay in shape while learning the best partner dance on earth!  Guys have their own part!!  Girls can be girls!!  

Now stand in front of each other and watch the magic unfold!!!!

 

There are no words to express my joy and gratitude that you are here today learning this new fusion!  I truly believe that Swank Dance Fitness provides a FUN means to staying in shape, while "gifting" to others the incredible hobby of West Coast Swing and/or Carolina Shag.  Please accept my most enthusiastic welcome to the Greatest Dance Fitness Program ever!

SWANK YOU

    Welcome to Swank University

 

Welcome and Congratulations on your brilliant decision to start living the SwankLIFE.  You truly can create the life you've always dreamed of, and you won't do it alone.  We've created a fail-proof program designed to get you Swanking quickly for yourself, and then promptly sharing the gift of Swank with others.  You're on your way to a fun and healthy life, leading to the financial freedoms you've always wanted!

 

Obviously, the first step is earning your Swank Degree, which you're already on your way to achieving!

 

Next, there are TWO ways to participate in Swank:

 

    1.  The Swank DVD's for those who prefer to learn on their own,

in the privacy of their own home or,

   

    2.   Swank CLASSES [Fitness & Dance] for the social                      butterfly who chosses to mingle and meet new friends!

ABOUT YOUR FOUNDER

 

Kellese Key's resume is one millions can only dream about achieving!  She has danced all of her life, starting at the age of 2 with extensive training in Jazz, Ballet, Tap, Clogging and Theatre.  Coming into the Swing Dance Scene in 1991, she quickly moved up the ranks, winning her first US Open title within 3 years.  Shortly after her first US Open title, she was honored with the Feather Award for Best Showcase Dancer, an award voted on by her peers and the general dance population.  In 1998, Kellese gave the Classic Division a go with her then husband, Brent Key.  They won, making Kellese Key the first female to ever win a title in both the Showcase and the Classic divisions at the prestigous US Open!

There is not enough paper to list all of Kellese's accomplishments but her highlights include:

10 Time US Open Champion

7 Time USA Grand National Champion

World Swing Dance Champion

2007 Impact Couple of the Year

Dallas Dance Hall of Fame

Kellese's passion for life and dance continues to infect dancers all across the globe!  Today, Kellese still actively competes, teaches, judges and performs all over the world and now begins her latest venture with Swank Dance Fitness, in an effort to combine fitnerss with the excitement of partner dancing!  She dedicates her journey to her parents!

 

                             WHAT IS SWANK?

 

 

Swank starts off as an individual cardio dance-fitness workout, working it's way into a partner cardio dance workout, to ultimately come together as West Coast Swing!

 

Swank gives you the opportunity to do the workout on your own first... allowing you to gain confidence with the moves and with yourself!

 

When you feel ready, you simply STAND IN FRONT OF A PARTNER, of the opposite role and watch the "gift" unfold!!

 

Swank’s goal is to expose West Coast Swing and Carolina Shag, two of the world’s favored partner dances to everyone who has ever seen them!

 

promote pairs...

for future potential partner dancing!
 
create different routines...

often... keeping it fresh and new!
 
wear swank gear...

along with dog tags...

showcase your license with pride!
 
offer class options...

keep it exciting... keep them coming back!

 

 

 

The Highest of Standards. 

Protecting our Brand is #1.
Swank has the right to revoke any license deemed necessary with or without warning!

SWANK KEYS

Step 1 - ICE
ICE represents “Isolation”. In the DVD, you learn 26 basic body movements, isolating one at a time from your head to your feet. These ICE components are then “plugged into” the workout. You can switch all of the components around.. choose your favorite and “plug them in”!! The objective of ICE is to teach you body isolation, muscle memory and provide you with a foundation for all future movement.

 

Step 2 - RHYTHM
This set teaches you the basic rhythm foundation for West Coast Swing and Carolina Shag. In the DVD, you learn 14 different moves that will have you well on your way to dancing/burning those calories “one triple step at a time”! The objective of RHYTHM is to get you comfortable with “triple steps” of all variations. This will help Swank create an effortless transition into partner dancing!

 

Step 3 - BASICS
In this set, you are taught a modification of the Basics of West Coast Swing; Sugar Push, Tuck Turn, Side Pass, Basket and Whip through our Swank Formula. This portion does not have to be danced with a partner.. hence our catch phrase “Partner Desired, Not Required” ... however, this is the section of Swank that creates the partner dance unintentionally.  The objective of the Swank Basics is to have everyone “Getting Fit Together” while learning to “Partner Dance Together”.

 

THE COPYRIGHT FORMULA [INSIDE OF THE BASICS]:

~Walk the Basic out, taking 8 counts.

~Replace 3,4 with a 3&4, walk out the rest, taking 8 counts.

~Keep 3&4 and replace 5,6 with 5&6, add ICE for 7,8.

THE WORKOUT

TIME TO LEARN THE MOVES...

SEE DVD MATERIAL

SwankSHOP vs SwankOUT

Swank SHOPS are geared towards “teaching” Swank workouts... for the ultimate goal of being able to get through one!  Swank SHOPS are classes, either locally or at events.

 

Swank OUTS are straight workouts.

There are 3 different Options for your Swank OUT:

  10 min Swank DESSERT

  30 min Swank APPETIZER

  50 min Swank ENTREE

 

Swank OUTS can have:

Solo workouts; everyone stands facing the mirror and does their workout [traditional] 

Mixed workouts; everyone faces each other, instead of the mirror [the new Swank way]

If no partner, you repeat again “Solo”... doubling your effort, intensifying your workout [secretly learning to partner dance].

 

SwankDANCE vs SwankFIT

 

IMPORTANT:

Swank meets Fitness

 

Fitness is very different from Dance in their work ethic styles.  The members of a fitness center have different intentions when going to the gym.  Therefore, Swank intends to keep the adrenaline pumping in the Fitness Arena!

 

Swank will use SwankSHOPS in the fitness centers and schools to educate the members.  Once educated, Swank will have “His” and “Her” workouts and “Mixed” workouts running like all other fitness classes.

 

Swank will use "1 Song Combos" and other Class styles in the dance studios.  This keeps the focus on the hidden "gift" of partner dancing!

 

 

1st The Music

 

  • Swank Dance Fitness has a "Formula" to their music...
  • A SwankOUT can be done to just about any genre of music...
  • Custom mixes are referred to as "Swankilations"

ROUTINE CRITERIA - The Elements

First, ask yourself, is this for SwankDANCE or SwankFIT?

If SwankDANCE,

The song will tell you where the Elements go.  The Elements are:

>ICE
>Rhythm
>Basic

 

If SwankFIT,

Ask yourself, how long is the workout?  [Dessert-10, Appetiser-30, Entree-60]

If a Dessert, the Elements are:

>ICE/Warm-Up

>Rhythm
>Basic
>Cool Down

 

If an Appetiser, the Elements are:                  

>Warm-up                                                        

>ICE                                                                

>Rhythm

>Basic

>Rhythm

>Basic

>Rhythm

>Cool Down

 

If an Entree, the Elements are the same as an Appetiser, you just repeat the Rhythm and Basic sections, then Cool Down.

 

 

Each routine must provide ICE for teaching Body Isolation.  ICE is the foundation of movement.    “ICE are the simple movements required to shine”

 

Each routine must provide a RHYTHM section.  “The Rhythm is the cardio dance/workout”.  You can add your own style and moves as long as you keep them in the slot.  Forward and backward movement.

 

Each routine must provide one or more of the BASIC Partner Moves (depends on length of workout).   “The Basics not only provide a cardio workout, they also provide the gift of partner dancing”

 

Our O Crew mentors will  “pop in” occasionally to support and offer any assistance needed.   

Never hesitate to contact The Crew for feedback or help.  We are a TEAM and Support each other 100%!

ROUTINE CRITERIA - The Elements

SWANKEOGRAPHY TIPS

When choreographing your workouts, focus on the following:

 

  • Use music that inspires the masses.. change it up for everyone! 
  • Break the moves down to their most “basic” form... Walk the move out in “half time”, taking 2 beats for each 1 step.
  • Choreograph in “32 beat” Increments;  (4 counts of 8), unless Blues then 6 counts of 8)    
  • Make “His” & “Her” versions.. keep it exciting.  Have them do different “ICE”! 
  • Interpret the music.  We are a SLAVE to the music always!  
  • Add arms to increase heart rate! 
  • Go deeper into the movement to intensify the workout!
  • Combo the ICE, you have 2 beats for 7 and 8.  Ex: use shoulder for 7 and use head for 8 or pop your knee for 7 and use your chest for 8, etc..
  • Match SwankOUT to your supporters... Ex:  If you have a youthful class, use Top 40 or newer music to a Swank Entree or for a slightly more mature audience, maybe try Motown or Rhythm and Blues to a Swank Appetizer...

Calling the moves with enough time for the students to follow is an “Art”.  It takes practice...

 

First, you must establish who will be the “leading partner”, known as the "pilot” (the partner responsible for starting the calls)  “The pilot” will describe the moves coming and set the pair of teachers up quickly.. Before a phrase starts.. (in the 3rd 8 count)

The “assisting partner”, known as the "co-pilot” (responsible for leading the other gender) 

 

When the Pilot calls out “a foot”, (ex: right, left, right, right, left.. whichever..)

The Co-Pilot needs to immediately follow with the opposing foot for that gender they are leading.

 

When the Pilot calls out “a direction” in which they are going, the Co-Pilot needs to immediately follow with the opposing direction.. etc...

 

You are a Team.. You are both leading separate groups TOGETHER.. You both need to be clear for your followers!

 

Take “2 sets” of 32 beat phrases to go through each move.  This lets the people know what you are doing.  (Ex: walk out the “rhythm of the basic” in place for 64 beats then add the walking forward/back for the next 64 beats..etc)

"The Art of the Call"

 

Swank FIT

 

 

 

 

Build 2 Sections of

 

 

 a SwankOUT!!!

First, Swank has a Attitude...

"giving, loving, caring, inspiring, encouraging, positive, fun and healthy attitude"...

 Lead your students with that mentality.. 

 

Swank encourages you to start your classes off as DONATION ONLY!!  Let them know that you trust them to take care of the class and you, the instructors!  If this does not work in your area, then you determine the cost that will make you and Swank both successful!

 

We want all of the classes to follow our Theory and Formula but, we also want to let the instructors use their own Flavor!!  Swank is all about EVERYONE'S FLAVOR!!!  Here are some Swanky Ideas:

 

BUILDING SWANK CLASSES

Teach Swank one section at a time.

 

week 1 - ICE class

week 2 - RHYTHM class

week 3 - SUGAR PUSH class

week 4 - TUCK TURN class

week 5 - SIDE PASS class

week 6 - PIVOT class

week 7 - BASKET class

week 8 - WHIP class

week 9 - REVIEW class

week 10 - Full SwankOUT using your series material.

10 WEEK SERIES

 

BUILDING SWANK CLASSES

continued...

1 SONG COMBO

a definite Favorite!!!

Put all of Swanks pieces into your favorite song.  Have them go home with something tangible. 

 

week 1 - use Sugar Push with a Side Pass

week 2 - use Tuck Turn with a Side Pass

week 3 - use Side Pass with a Basket

week 4 - use Sugar Push with a Whip

 

Formula:

Pick your favorite song

Choose 3-4 pieces of ICE

Choose 3-4 pieces of RHYTHM

Choose 1-2 of the BASICS

 

Swank is unique in that we have His and Her versions...

 

Create “HIS Class” and “HIS workout”
Create “HER Class” and “HER workout” 

 

These are a lot of Fun and help to build confidence before working out with the opposite gender.

 

Swank offers Solo workouts/classes, and Swank also offers Mixed workouts/classes...

(solo = one gender/position [follower or leader]  /  mixed = mixed gender/position)

 

In a Solo workout, you are in a workout primarily with your same gender or students that are just in that class to learn that part for fun and for a challenge...   

 

In a Mixed workout, you are in a workout with mixed gender and you start the workout Solo to then repeat the entire workout with a partner in front of you.. letting the "gift" of Partner Dance unfold!

CREW BENEFITS

THE CREW & "THE ASSIST"

For some areas, it can be a real challenge to get a second instructor for your classes...

For this challenge, SWANK has created “the Assist”

Here is how it works:

 

The Assist can be anyone The Crew chooses.. keeping in mind, the Crew Qualities we strive for.

 

The Crew choosing “The Assist”, pays for “The Assist” out of their own money.  This is NOT the responsibility of Swank.

 

The Assist can make NO MORE than $20 per class they assist and, can only be an assist for a maximum of 6 months.

 

The Assist” are only allowed to stand in front of the class with The Crew teaching to help be a visual for the class.. for the students to follow... They are NOT allowed to teach for Swank.  They must earn their Degree to teach!

 

Being an assist gives them the opportunity to learn before they ever get their Degree.  It’s an advantage for both involved!

THE TRAVELING CREW & "THE ASSIST"

Should “The Crew” be traveling or unavailable to teach an already scheduled class, “The Assist” may lead that scheduled class on  “The Crew’s” behalf, however, they are not allowed to teach any new material.

 

You want to encourage them to earn their own Degree... this is a Great Opportunity for them & You!
