You may have heard that playing games in dance class isn’t educational. WRONG! We are here to debunk that myth once and for all for dance teachers everywhere. There are many perks to playing games during class. Ok, we’re not talking about “Duck Duck Goose” or “Tag” but dance-related games that are geared towards continuing dancers' education in a fun, digestible way where they actually remember what they learned!
You are a teacher who loves trying new things and challenging your students’ creativity. You don’t like the mundane routine for class- you like taking risks, surprising your students and sometimes, even surprising yourself!
You are a Cultural Champion! You are the teacher who appreciates the history of dance and understands the importance of knowing what has come before us. You feel that dancers must understand the evolution of various dance styles and how those events have led us to the present moment.
Your students’ mental and emotional health is a top priority and you strive to set a healthy example. You believe that dance teachers can and should provide more than just a dance experience in their classes. You take your responsibility as a dance educator seriously, and ensure your classes are a place where students feel safe to take risks and express themselves.
