USASN: How many total dance video tips to you have in your online library and what is the range of time length for them?

BB: At the time of our lunch in January of 2016 we 200+ videos and 11 hours of total content! Most of the videos run from 2-20min in length with most being in the 3-6min range. Its the most content in one place for West Coast Swing. As the months roll by we will be adding more videos as we learn what the community wants the most.


USASN:
Mention several of the key topics that you cover.

BB: Patterns from beginner to professional. Techniques like musicality, styling, connection, spins, turns, footwork, and much more. With this program, there's no more hunting YouTube and trying to figure stuff out.

I also have a Q&A section where I answer a wide range of questions that I get from our members. These range from etiquette to practice tips to community dynamics. If it will help you in your dancing we will cover it!


USASN:
Can these be viewed on a smart phone as well as a desktop or laptop?

BB: Yep. They can be viewed on your laptop, iPad, cell phone - anything that offers "online" access.

Currently, you cannot download our content, though. We are working on options where that is possible. Honestly we are just at the beginning of this project so there is lots more to come.


USASN:
Explain the difference between your free and paid tier.

BB: Again, the community will tell us what it wants but the currently model in early 2016 looks like this...

About 8% of the content is free to everyone. Go in and watch what you want. Hopefully this will excite dancers about the rest of what we have to offer.

The paid members get everything I have to offer! We are creating new content all the time and our members are helping educate us about what content they want and how they want to consume it.


USASN:
What is your philosophy and approach for these videos?

BB: I want bring value to the dancers at every level. Let me repeat that.

I WANT TO BRING VALUE TO DANCERS AS EVERY LEVEL.

All of our content is high quality, quality video, quality instruction. We give away tons for free and in the end will have a wide variety of streaming and downloadable products for dancer of all levels.

Also, Iím passionate about people actually learning. I know from my testing that dancers rarely sit down and watch a 60-minute instructional video. Thatís why we packaged our videos in 2-5 minute actionable pieces that you can learn from very very easily!


USASN:
Give us a 2-sentence commercial to encourage dancers to sign up for your free tier and sign up for unlimited paid access to all your lessons and tips.

BB: Join us as a free member. I promise to give you great value for simply investing your time in checking us out.
