Everything plus one-on-one lessons

This tier is also pick your price, and has all benefits of the "Pick Your Price" tier, but with private lessons. This is a great tier for anyone who wants to work on their dancing with some personal instruction. Private lessons are usually super expensive (for good reason: we spend years and years working to be excellent dancers and teachers, and we need to pay our bills!). BUT, I also believe in making dance accessible to everyone. So you choose a monthly payment that makes sense for you, and you can update it at any time. To sign up for your private lesson, look for the google form that's sent to you at the beginning of each month and let me know when you want to dance together (via Zoom). #Jazzforeveryone
***If you do not plan on taking one-on-one lessons, please sign up for the other tier since this tier has limited spaces***

About Bailey McCully

Hi, I’m Bailey, and I’m glad you’re here! This Patreon page is an invitation to join a community that’s excited about jazz! Whether you’ve been dancing for years or you’ve never danced before, there’s space and a place for you here. Hop on in, the jazz is jumpin’
The What:
Every week there will be a new upload of Patreon-only content:  
  • Jazz Snacks (goofy videos: think soundies but in colour!)
  • Dance Lab (Classes with topics of your choice)
  • Rhythm Romp (Choreography tutorials)
  • Talk-o’s (monthly podcast featuring guests from the swing dance community and beyond)
  • One-on-one lessons (sign up with the google form available on the 1st of each month)
AND: polls, inspirational resources, online dance parties, and more to come! Things will change and evolve to fit the interests of those who sign up. Check out the tier descriptions for specifics <3 
The Why:
1: to provide access to tools, resources, and a community that empowers folks to participate in the creation of Jazz responsibly and sustainably.
2: AND, to explore a different route to dance “success”...and challenge what that means in the first place. I’m a female dancer without a dance partner. On Purpose. I love collaborating, and I work with others all the time...BUT: I’m just not interested in the lead-follow, heteronormative partnership brand, or climbing the competition ladder. I’m here to be boldly different, boldly me, and make an encouraging space for you to be boldly you.
The How:
Super easy! Pick a tier, and start dancing! 
By being a patron, you’re providing financial stability that makes it possible for this to grow, support other artists, and keep creating...all while worrying less about rent and groceries!
The Who:
My name is Bailey, and I’m a dancer based out of Seattle, WA where I teach, choreograph, perform, and learn. The other side of my professional life is based in education. I’ve spent most of my life studying to be and working as an educator, so pedagogical excellence is always at the forefront of my work. I care about teaching in a way that makes dancing accessible, lifts up learners, and honors the legacy of the dance. I’m so excited you’re here, and I can’t wait to make some beautiful jazz together.

**If finances are keeping you from being a part of this community, please reach out. You are welcome here no matter what**

**Intellectual Acknowledgement: Jazz is a Black American art form, and comes from the culture, ingenuity, and genius of Black American culture. I acknowledge, with gratitude, the privilege to learn about and participate in Jazz. To put these words into action, 15% of all income received on this Patreon will be donated to various organizations that serve Black communities (such as the Frankie Manning Foundation, Cleveland Junior Jitterbugs, and Collective Voices for Change, to name a few). Donations are made quarterly, along with a post with the details.
Goals
38 of 40 patrons
Wow! 40 Patrons! To celebrate, I'll be holding a live (online) workshop event with classes on topics requested by YOU! And of course, after a day of classes, we'll have a dance party. THANK YOU for growing this community!
