I've been having conversations recently about the most common form of tango learning (group lessons) being a poor way of teaching for reasons such as the one-size-fits-all structure, pressure for all students to keep up at the pace of the group, and demotivation for advanced dancers to attend. The alternative suggested is practica-based learning where learning is broken up into micro-goals (example: "learn to shift weight," "learn to step on the beat," "learn a parallel cross"). Students who already have mastery over a certain skill pair up with someone who needs to learn it, and they work together peer-to-peer. Here's a video of the process: Here's a site explaining everything in more detail: http://www.mitramartin.com/peer-to-peer-learning-project/#application I was wondering what people thought of the merits of such a method? Has anyone seen it in use? Do you see it taking more or less effort for the instructor vs. group classes? Do you think the problems ascribed to group classes are valid? My big question: how do you get the advanced dancers into the class to help out? What is their motivation?
