  • Bonus Practice Loops - Edited drum solo phrases on repeat, so you can easily drill the different sections of the choreography, templates, or improvisation

  • Let's take the stress out of drum solos! You'll gain an array of tools that will enable you to dance dynamic drum solos that are thoroughly enjoyable for the dancer and for the audience.


  • My movements... or yours? I'll teach you a choreography of my design, which you can learn AND/OR use as an example of a way to put these tools into action. I'll share methods for creating your own choreography, and a method of improvisation that can be applied to all different styles of music and dance.


  • Understand the music. We'll break down the different sections and rhythms of a particular drum solo in a way that can be applied to various compositions. We'll learn a combination to each section. Then, we'll translate the combinations into templates, or frameworks that you can fill in with movements that you enjoy.

How the Online Intensive Works


  • Start date: The course starts Friday, March 12, 2021. You'll get access to a series of pre-recorded lessons that you can watch on your schedule.


  • Lessons released on Fridays: Each Friday, you'll get 4-6 pre-recorded video lessons and written info that you can stream or download any time, anywhere, on YOUR schedule, for up to * 6 months * after the course is finished. Each lesson addresses a different section of the drum solo via a series of bite-sized videos teaching and practicing a combo, teaching you about the Template and Pauses used, and coaching you to create your own combo and improvisation. There is also cumulative review to help you put all the pieces together.


  • Achievable content: Lessons include technique and methodology, rhythm identification, explanations, demos, dance-along drills, and a stretch — all in achievable, bite-sized, pre-recorded videos that you can do on YOUR schedule. (I want you to succeed!)


  • Structure + Options: Each lesson address a different phrase of the drum solo. We identify and explain the foundation rhythm, listen for the accents, and determine the progression of each phrase. You will have the option to learn and practice the combo that I have developed for each section, understand the template that I have chosen to work from and develop your own combos from that template, and use that template to improvise to that that phrase. As the course progresses, you'll assemble a choreography and/or improvisation by connecting these phrases.


  • Catch-Up Week + Live Support: There will be a catch-up week with TWO live Q&A sessions and no new lessons, so Rosa can answer your questions and give demonstrations as needed. At the end of the course, there will be another optional live Q&A to wrap up the course. The live sessions will be recorded and questions can be submitted in advance, for those who cannot join in.


  • Flexible Scheduling: The videos are accessible for 6 months after the course ends. Plus, you can download the videos for offline study and drilling!


  • Accountability: Choose from Self Study, Accountability, and VIP Feedback options. See your progress in the Teachable platform, or connect with Rosa for feedback and coaching. Connect with other students via the optional private Facebook group!


  • Certificate of Completion: Dancers who choose Accountability or VIP Feedback have until May 16 to submit your practice videos in order to receive Grace Academy Certificate of Completion for this module.


  • Any location: You can do this course from anywhere in the world, in any time zone, on your schedule.


  • Performance opportunity: Interested in a virtual hafla? Stay tuned...!


  • Payment Plans: YES, payment plans are available!
