Dance teacher training

    Do you love dancing and want to share its benefits with those around you?

    Is a teaching career part of your goals?

    Teaching dance is a very rewarding career, but it is not without consequences. It is a profession that requires the commitment of people driven primarily by an honest desire to help others to improve themselves.

    It is in your power to become a good dance teacher through learning about dancing and especially about teaching. Your means of achieving this goal are to study, to practice and especially to observe your own teachers. It is usually a long and slow process so you must keep an open mind and be willing to learn many new things every day.

    No one can make you a teacher. Teaching is not just a profession. It is an attitude. Either you have it already or you don't have it yet. You can improve your teaching attitude and techniques and learn about other teachers’s learning vehicles by following a teacher training program. 

    Although you can take as many dance classes and workshops as possible, there are many important elements of teacher training that are never mentioned in most schools and congresses. They will make a difference in your effectiveness as an instructor and are in fact, the core of our program:
