 Who am I and why do I make videos?

Hi! I'm Rustin Van Katwyk and, as you may have guessed, I'm a dancer and a university professor (I'm also a proud husband and father to two adorable little kids!), and I started dancing when I was 5.  I've been teaching at universities for 10 years, and over the years I have performed all over the world, and have taught people of many diverse backgrounds, ages, and experience levels.  

Who are my videos for?
Classrooms and dance studios are great places to learn about dance, but what if you don't have access to them?  What if you do have access to them, but you want to learn even more?  What if you just want to learn more about dance in a time and place that's convenient for you? My goal is to help you learn more about dance and improve your dance skills wherever you may be.

What's my vision?
My long-term goal is to create a hub of information, a digital library if you will, where you can look up just about anything you'd like to know about dance and find a video on it. As a patron, your input will help guide the direction and scale of this vision.

What's my direction and scale right now?
At the moment I'm a "one-man-show", so my videos are focused on areas of my expertise. However, as my work gains more support I will be able to collaborate with other dance professionals to cover the topics and styles of dance that are beyond my current capabilities.

 How does Patreon work?

If you like my work, want to support it, and help it grow, then all you have to do is become a patron and make a monthly pledge. 

If your financial situation ever changes, you can always change your pledge down the road, even if it means you need to stop pledging altogether during a difficult (and hopefully unlikely) financial situation.

To get started simply create a quick profile, and choose a dollar amount you want to pledge to my Patreon per month. You'll then become a member of my Patreon community (whether you're a quiet supporter or an active participant) and you'll receive some rewards in return. 

What rewards do I offer for pledges?

Here's the reward tiers for the pledge amounts I currently have to offer: 
  • $1/month - access to patron-only videos and posts where you can connect with me and other patrons and also share ideas for future content.
  • $5/month - Vlog-style editorial video where I'll share my thoughts about dance-related topics, my work, my personal life, or anything else in between.
  • $10/month - Your Patreon name in the credits at the end of my videos.
Pledging at higher reward tiers will automatically qualify you to receive the lower tier rewards. If there's a reward you want to see offered in the future, then become a patron and let me know! 

What will I use the pledges for?

The pledges I receive from patrons will be devoted to: 
  • improving the quality of my production studio and equipment
  • expanding my work by offering more content that my patrons want to see. 

Thank you!

Thank you for joining me in making a source of dance knowledge available to everyone!
