    So I'm planning on starting a new dance scene from scratch. I'm thinking about doing instructor demos either before or after the lesson. Do you think these demonstrations would be helpful/inspiring to beginners? Or do you think they will intimidate and discourage new dancers from attempting to learn a dance that seems so exceptionally hard? Maybe there are specific ways you can dance to inspire learning but not necessarily to intimidate the beginners. (For context I'll be teaching zouk)

    I think that is a great idea. But I would encourage you the keep the demos very simple. Nothing high level. Just a nice clean showing of what the beginners can aspire to.
    Mr 4 styles and Requiem like this.

    Demo on the end of salsa, wcs, zouk etc class is the norm in recent decade I think, so people film it with their cameras and phones. Or it wasn't the case on the zouk classes you were attending before you decided to start teaching ?

    Yeah but they’re usually shown to people who already are invested in those dances. I was afraid of intimidating a class full of complete beginners.
