I think what most have missed is the " style " of dance he is teaching. I,m guessing its Amer.style at Bronze level.
If this is the case, then the time amount he presents should be more than sufficient ( if its the standard 6 dances ).
In 3 and 1/2 yrs, with good instruction and dedication by a competant individual, one should be able to train someone,well into a Silver Amer. style, and or an Intern. style at Assoc level.
BUT... not having seen the poster and how they perform ( teaching wise ) then I will not pass judgement.
I also believe, that people sometimes confuse ones dance ability , with the quality of teaching.. thats not to say one should not be a competant dancer.. but.. good dancing has little or nothing to do with the " art " of teaching.
Teaching is much more than spouting technique and correcting mistakes...
