You'll get a lot from PWP. To take it to the next level,
ADD PWP VIP COACHING TO YOUR ORDER
for the special 2022 VIP COACHING advance rate
(value: $300; see checkout for special rate for 2022 members)
All VIP members will attend at least one live coaching meeting with me, with times to accommodate dancers around the world, for your own live 30-minute coaching session with me, plus a chance to learn from others (or go solo if you prefer), and a before and after video submission for personalized feedback from me. This is for EACH VIP member.
The feedback was fantastic last year, and many members went on to my other coaching series. I'm so pleased to be able to offer this again this year.
WHAT YOU'LL GET IN THE VIP COACHING UPGRADE:
Live coaching meetings and personalized feedback on your dance video
Get tailored feedback from me on your before-and-after submitted practice or performance videos, with personalized, effective techniques to help you reach your technique and performance goals (and trends!). Live coaching meetings, where you'll get coached by me directly, plus the recordings from them to review after, so you can truly appreciate your progress!
VIP solo or group options available this year
VIP group times will accommodate dancers from all over the world, and most dancers feel they learn faster in the group setting, being able to get their own dedicated coaching slots as well as witnessing the work of others in their slots.
However, this year I am also opening up the solo coaching option, for those who don't want to worry about committing to group times, but who still want tailored one-on-one feedback from me. You can decide after signing up for VIP, which route you want to take. The reduced rate will only be available when you sign up now with PWP, and is good for sessions during March 2022.
If you are ready to VIP it, you won't regret joining!
It's feedback that is empowering ...and absolutely specific to you.
Treat yourself to stronger confidence, and greater power, this year. You deserve it, and so do we.
Below is the outline of group VIP process. The solo option is similar in terms of the steps, but the videos sharing and coaching time would be just between you and me!
Each VIP submits to me a short *1-2 minute* video (via our private recording submission app), either from a costumed show or just an informal practice video from your home, for feedback. Improvisation or your own choreography that you are ok with sharing (not someone else's choreo).
Connect with the other dancers in the VIP group, in the discussion forum VIP thread, to share your goals and challenges, and reflect on how you most want to progress this year.
3) FEEDBACK #1 :
You get preliminary video feedback from me on your video, with the benefit of being able to watch and learn from my feedback to the other dancers as well.
4) LIVE MEETINGS:
Live group meetings, with personal 30-minute slots, to go over your feedback and try out some of my movement and performance skills suggestions, with feedback in real time. (There will be slots to include all the VIP members from different time zones, and the sessions will be recorded so you can review them after.)
You may submit a second, freshly recorded video of the same piece for follow-up feedback, again 1-2 minutes, incorporating my suggestions that you want to work on.
6) FEEDBACK #2:
You get video feedback from me on the second video, with comments on what was different and what you might still want to work on. You'll also be able to watch the feedback given to the other VIP participants on their videos, for the group option.
SIGN UP for the VIP option if:
- You are ready for supportive, empowering feedback, to noticeably up-level your dance technique, performance, and stage presence.
- You want to get a non-judgmental outside perspective on your work, and to feel respected as a person and as an artist in the process.
- You want to benefit from coaching with me either as a one-time tune-up, or to experience this process in a compact format, before committing to a longer coaching series (such as Bring Your Best).
- You are someone who cares about the details, and who doesn't want just "Oh, you were great!" feedback, but actual specifics, so that you understand how you can fully utilize your power in performance, and feel more self-confident fully owning yourself onstage...including online.

After 25+ years of coaching in my tailored solo-within-group format, I'm always stretching myself to improve as a coach, and to find solutions where other teachers or coaches might not have been able to help.
RANYA'S COACHING IS GENIUS!
Julia (Stuttgart, Germany) - I am largely self-taught and I was used to filming myself in order to analyse and improve my dancing, so I already had a lot of ideas about what might be better. But Ranya made me realize things I would never have seen by myself. Her comments are always spot on and at the same time always super encouraging. And she will not only tell you what kind of changes might improve your dance but also how to achieve them. Especially her expertise on stage presence and performance qualities is invaluable and makes her coaching format unique. I highly recommend her program to any dancer who wants to not only dance better but also feel better about their dance.
"The GC programs are 100% worth the investment"
Penny Ting (Kaohsiung, Taiwan) | Dancer, Teacher -
Ranya applies her unique training to different levels of dancers, so no matter which level you're at, she will give you specific comments that just made for you. So there's no competitiveness or worries, just to focus on personal progress.
Ranya's breathing technique and the imagery training (painting the room, creating characters, etc.) are also amazing. I've tried to implement these ideas in my different dance pieces and I do find they work very well. This course also helped my teaching, that now I can teach others those techniques and have students go deeper into the meaning of the dance.
A VERY SAFE AND SUPPORTIVE ATMOSPHERE
Bobbie (Victoria, BC) | Dancer, Teacher - I really appreciated how positive Ranya's critique was for myself and everyone else. Not once did I feel threatened or judged. She created a very safe and supportive atmosphere and I appreciate that she shared some of her own personal struggles and process. At first I was intimidated to be critiqued in front of others, but as we got going I found it was helpful to see everyone else being critiqued too. Often the concepts and skills they were working on were applicable to me personally, and I was able to listen to and evaluate all the critique in a more objective way than when it was just my own feedback, if that makes sense. I LOVED seeing other's personalities and musicality come through their dance. It was inspiring and made me that much more excited about my own creative process and interpretation.
"Ranya is a master instructor!"
Mimi (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) | Dancer, Teacher -
Ranya's wealth of knowledge is uncommon and she delivers her unique message in a variety of ways which make understanding the method abundantly clear. Ranya’s teaching involves dance movement, body mechanics, and musicality, but extends further to context, history, culture, theatre and comedy.
The online meeting environment is safe and supportive and one can make friends for a lifetime.These coaching courses are for any dancer who is ready to excel towards more intelligent, confident, and exquisite performances. Forever, thank-you, Ranya!

Do you believe you can make fast progress towards your performance goals? I do. In just 3 or 4 months? Yes.
Simply put, that is what we do in my series. And it gets better every year - after almost 20 years of coaching in this format, I'm always stretching myself to improve as a coach, and to find solutions where other teachers might not have been able to help.
If you are ready to jump up a level or two or three in just a few months, and you are ready to dig deep, I'll help you get there.
The results I've seen from dancers of all levels are inspiring. If you join us, you will make progress during the time of the series, period. It may be the type of progress you would expect..... and it may be something you didn’t even think about before. And it will probably surpass your expectations.
But if you have any doubts, you can speak to any of the dancers who have done my series previously. There's a reason most series members come back to attend another program, and another, and another, each time reaching a new level in their artistry and confidence. Reach out to one of them on Facebook, or I can send you their way. They can speak to what they experienced from their own participation, and the progress they saw in fellow participants over the course of the series.
Participants in my coaching series have said that the series "add up to much more than the sum of its parts" …and I think you'll agree!
