About this project
"DANCE WITH MARIANNE"- THE FIRST PARTNER DANCING QUICK KIT!
Everybody can dance!
Let's unleash the dancer in you!
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYBODY WHO HAS PLEDGED and thank you to KICKSTARTER!!! You have touched my heart and good things have come out of launching my kickstarter project. Our dance community has gotten bigger and I am determined to re-launch my project in a different way for a smaller budget in the near future.
If I don't have your E-mail and you would like to be a part of it, please E-mail me and keep in touch otherwise so I can tell you about upcoming projects, workshops and lessons.
All best and KEEP DANCING!:-)
From my heart,
“DANCE WITH MARIANNE” will be an intensive ballroom dancing quick kit I have created, to teach people the basic foundation of ballroom dancing. It will serve as a short cut and save people time and money on private classes. Presented in a simple, creative, fun way, the tool kit will contain two 60- minute videos and a companion workbook for learning partner dancing. It’s also the first comprehensive ballroom anti-ageing kit. Leveraging my expertise in multiple dance styles, performance methods and healing modalities, I will teach my own unique partner dancing techniques that help balance body, mind and soul. From basic beginner to ballroom teachers and competing dance professionals, there will be something to learn for everybody. You will learn how to:
· Improve memory and brain function
· Reduce stress
· Lose weight
· Strengthen heart and immune system
· Gain high self-esteem and have great social benefits
“Dance with Marianne"- electronic ballroom dancing quick kit
VIDEO 1: a 60-minute basic foundation for all partner dancing and practical exercises with great health benefits including a warm- up program for daily use!
VIDEO 2: The practical application of my techniques from video1 with an introduction to the 9 most popular partner dances: Salsa, Merengue, American style Rumba, Cha-Cha, Samba, Foxtrot, Waltz, Swing, and Argentine Tango .
E-BOOK: an electronic workbook with further illustrations of my method and hands-on advice for dancers.
And, of course: ENJOY DANCING!
WHAT MAKES THIS INSTRUCTIONAL TOOLSET DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS IN THE MARKET?
“DANCE WITH MARIANNE” will be different because of its mixture of unique training methods and my hands-on enthusiastic support of my students, conveyed with a lot of fun and humor. This set will be a great short- cut in understanding how to connect and flow with a partner. My strength as a teacher lies in the fact that I’ve taught such a diversity of people for many years and bring a lot of experience as a dance performer with a well- rounded background in ballet, modern, jazz, tap, yoga as well as a filmmaker, actor and Reiki healer (energy work). Out of all this I’ve extracted a unique method of teaching that has been proven to be most effective. This method will share my positive energy and motivate users to learn quickly and effectively. It is my life's work.
“Dance with Marianne" - Limited Edition Ballroom Dancing Quick Kit
All backers, who pledge $225 and more, will get the whole special limited edition ballroom dancing quick kit with book and DVD´s (limited to a maximum of 100 hardcover books).
HOW THIS PROJECT CAME ABOUT
Time and again, dance students came up to me and shared, that besides learning how to dance, they reaped benefits far beyond their expectations: their lives had improved through ballroom dancing and they had become healthier, happier and more successful people.
They kept asking me to share my unique teaching techniques so they could refer to them all the time and that's why I'm on kickstarter to produce this project.
If my project gets funded, the quick kit will be available for download by spring 2012!

MY COMMITMENT TO THIS PROJECT’S SUCCESS
I’m putting up more than two thirds of the costs of “DANCE WITH MARIANNE”, and am now looking for support to help me fund the rest of my project through kickstarter.com, an online resource to create new creative projects.
From the deepest recesses of my heart, I THANK YOU for considering to support “DANCE WITH MARIANNE”.
Check out the frequently asked questions below and the incentives on the right. And please tell your friends about “Dance with Marianne”!
Your investment will allow us to go into production and print the companion book for the two videos by the end of January 2012! We’ll rehearse over Xmas. Bring on the golden age!
- HOW KICKSTARTER WORKS
Kickstarter offers a platform to fund new projects with creative ideas. It’s powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be funded fully or no money changes hands. In other words, if we don’t raise our goal of $23,890, we lose everything. Once we have reached (and hopefully surpassed!) our goal, we will contact you to get your address and then we will start working on getting those incentives to you!
- HOW TO PLEDGE
Just click the green “Back This Project” button in the upper right-hand corner. You will be asked to fill in your pledge amount and select a reward. From there, you will go through the Amazon checkout process. You must finish the Amazon checkout process for your pledge to be recorded.
* Please note that producer titles do not bestow any creative or business involvement nor does the credit entitle any claim of ownership.
ASK A QUESTION
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
Please feel free to email me with any questions!
Here's the rub: If I don't reach my goal of $23,890, I get zero of the dollars pledged, and the project ceases to work. So please donate, and SPREAD THE WORD to anyone who you think may be--or become--a devoted dance lover like yourself. Kickstarter makes spreading the word about my project an absolute breeze.
If funding fails, all pledges are cancelled and that's that. Your card is not charged, it’s like nothing ever happened. I, however, will go into a deep depression.
Yes, and I hope to! Every additional dollar that I raise will go into making DANCE WITH MARIANNE a better product. Surpassing our goal could mean such possibilities as being able to fund more publicity for the project, so this project reaches even more dance lovers. I could also add more dance videos!!!
Of course! Everybody has an aunt, spouse or friend who would love to learn how to dance, they might not even know it yet! Why not get them an E-book, video for download, the two DVD’s or the whole package? Just let us know the name you would like to donate under. We will contact you once funding is complete to gather information so that we can get your incentives to the address you choose.
Of course, Dance is a universal language! I chose Kickstarter because it's international, and I know there are ballroom dance lovers all over the world. Just click on the Amazon Payment Button and you will see that you can pay with a credit card from any country! But you must finish the Amazon checkout process for your pledge to be recorded. If you have any problems just contact me at email@example.com.
Projected date: March 21st 2012. Rest assured you will be the FIRST group to receive the DVD’s and Book when it is available and we will keep you updated regularly on the release.
