I think the teaching style is probably very effective--especially for those who learn visually or who need that "hands on" approach. I guess I've gotten to be (unfortunately and in some cases fortunately) a "style snob" because of a certain American "Period" dance group I dance with where they rarely pay attention to any kind of consistent form. I don't dislike dancing with people of different traditions, sometimes I pick up something I like more than what is "RSCDS acceptable." It's just sometimes hard to dance with others from a different tradition.

Business-like, efficient, with the aim of getting the dancers moving
in a dance as soon as possible.
I am sure the people watching a dance taught in this way will
remember what they saw and be able to do something very similar as
soon as their turn comes.
