About the Condensed Teaching Method

Condensed Teaching Method (CTM) is a teach order that includes these most popular dance actions, integrating some of the more difficult dance actions with the easier ones,and defers less used dance actions and redundancies to shorten the normal teach time.

CTM partially reflects dance steps that have a higher frequency of use. It retains fundamental dance actions and includes more dancer-friendly calls. It omits some actions that are redundant, and others less utilized. It was not designed as a new list or a new dance program. It is not a Blast Class
or a Fast Track to other dance programs. It is meant to illustrate how one could provide quality entertainment with less material in a reduced teach time. It also questions the necessity of omitted material within our current dance form, with hopes some change could be accepted by our activity.
