Country Nomads is a veteran owned and operated dance instruction business. This trio's primary focus is on Country Swing Instruction, with a growing focus on preserving the laid back and fun atmosphere of bar dancing and its community. We hope to provide resources for dancers looking to safely and confidently bar dance, as well as those looking to showcase their skills and compete; therefor diving deeper into concepts found in dance studios and other dance styles. There is no wrong way to bar dance and have fun, and if you want to take your dancing to the next level, we are excited to offer a curriculum that includes a basic home step (Basic 3), a set list of 26 beginner moves, 30+ intermediate moves and concepts that go beyond just moves/patters/combos and into technique, dance logics and styling. Country Nomads has a dance studio located in Mesa AZ called Nomads Studio. Nomads Studio is open seven day a week for group lessons, bootcamps, and private lessons focused on Country Swing, Bar Line Dancing, and once a week West Coast Swing in partnership with White Rabbit. We teach using syllabus-based lessons, created by Gabriel Dubois, called the Nomads Method. Due to the nature of bar dancing being so subjective, and to help our students; Country Nomads focuses on the core fundamentals: Frame, Connection and Control as well as footwork, timing, drills and exercises to teach dancing that flows with body momentum and mechanics. However, the Nomads Method isn't too controlled, rigid, hard to learn, or hard to compete. Utilizing this method, you will be able to grab a stranger, friend or loved one and spin around the dance floor, cause that's what it's all about! Country Nomads is currently traveling around the United States teaching the Nomads Method and spreading the joys of Country Swing learn more about out of state events and traveling below.
