Pro Am Competitions
Doug is available to dance in Pro-Am Strictly Swings at any of the conventions that he attends.
A Pro-Am Division is where a Dance Professional dances with an Amateur/Student. These are usually 1-3 songs (3-6 minutes) of dancing where the student is judged. Dancing Pro-Ams with Doug is a great way to better your competitive and social dancing!
• If you are a regular private lesson student, there is no floor fee for a Strictly Pro-Am dance.
• If you are not a regular private lesson student, you can choose to take a private coaching session prior to the Pro-Am or pay a $30 floor fee.
• Prize moneys from competitions are split between the Pro and the Am.
