The Building Technique Progressions Workshop, hosted by Olivia and the Dance Ed Tips Team, was an excellent way to start off my planning for the upcoming dance season. Olivia provided a clear and applicable method of generating fluid and successful technique classes. Her easy to use worksheets and tools provided in the workshop makes designing effective, goal-oriented technique progressions a breeze! I cannot wait to use her methods and tools in my lesson planning and teaching this year!

Dance Ed Tips is a fun and innovative way to stay connected to Olivia throughout her real life teaching experiences. She always finds a way to relate to her followers and answers questions right away. Once I saw she was offering a workshop, I knew I had to sign up. The 'How to Improve Students' Dance Technique" workshop was presented in a way that allowed any dance teacher to follow along and apply it to their specific needs. Olivia provided a base set of tools and worksheets that really allowed me to focus in on all the moving parts when it comes to teaching technique successfully. As a k-12 Dance teacher, technique is not always my main focus but what was great about the tools and worksheets provided is that they can be applied to teaching concepts such as the elements of dance. I cannot wait to apply these tools this coming school year and I look forward to attending Olivia's future workshops.

Review:
The Building Technique Progressions Course was amazing! I came to the workshop not really knowing what area of my teaching the workshop would fall under (k-5 or studio setting) and left knowing exactly where this planning method would assist me in the upcoming year! The class helped me jumpstart the planning process for the year for my studio classes, which truthfully I often overlooked planning because I was so overwhelmed planning for the k-5 year. I left the class feeling refreshed, excited, and inspired to bring this teaching approach to my students! Olivia's versatility in her teaching experiences allowed her to modify and connect the workshop to each educator in the room, regardless of their teaching setting. Thanks Olivia and team for the amazing workshop, I can't wait for the next one!

Review:
As someone still new to teaching, the Building Technique Progressions Workshop helped me see what I've been doing right, what I've been doing wrong and how I can improve as a teacher. It gave me a clear idea of how a class should be set up and what exercises should be done to reach an end goal. Instead of filling class time with various, unconnected activities, exercises should lay foundation and work on a technique that will be needed later on. The workshop also provided me with resources that I can use to plan my entire year as well as weekly classes. A huge thanks to Olivia and all her hard work!

Thank you Olivia for sharing pedagogical methods you use in your own teaching practice! As a middle school dance educator in a public school, I that "Building Technique Progressions Workshop" offered me inquiry into revising ways I can carry out a clearer intention though out each exercise I do with my students in order to work toward a certain skill and/or even concept. In public school dance education we are often pressed for time and the clearer we can be during each session with this intention is extremely valuable! Looking forward to future workshops and PD!!!

I am so glad to have found Dance Ed Tips and Olivia! I have been following and learning from her for over a year now, and I have gathered so much helpful 'tips' along the way. I recently had the opportunity to attend her workshop on Building Technique Progressions and would highly recommend it to all. It offered great material for year long class planning, thought provoking questions to my teaching approach and a positive learning experience. Olivia and her team were great to meet in person and I look forward to the next one.

Review:
The Building Technique Progressions Online Course was so well put together. The information presented was not only interesting, but also actionable, practical ways to progress in my own teaching settings/studios. I appreciate the thoroughness of the course and how systematic the methods taught are. Olivia presented each of the modules in a carefully, well thought out way. She made each video easy to understand and assimilate into any dance teachers setting. I definitely will take additional courses through Dance Ed Tips. Thank you so much!
