Sometimes Dance Instructors get too caught up in the smaller details of steps and patterns in their teaching, focusing more on the HOW and forgetting the WHY their students come to learn social dancing.
Asking these questions is important. We need to see the class from the students’ perspective in order to meet their needs. We need to remind ourselves of the big picture.
The first thing we need to remember is WHY your students come to your classes.
We believe it takes a different approach to teach students who want to become a professional dancer or a dance artist, and to teach students who want to become a social dancer. If you mainly teach social dancers, then applying the techniques we cover in this course can enhance their overall learning experience, leave your students feeling satisfied, and keep them wanting to learn more.
In this course, you will get a mix of videos, PDFs you can download, and links to extra resources you can find on the internet. You will also get a Workbook at the end, which you can use as a guide after finishing this course.
The main principle of this whole course is to put your students on centre stage. We are shifting the focus from the teacher to the student, the person who is doing the learning. Your students are the superstars here, not you. This way you will surely win your students’ heart by making them the focus of attention in your teaching and learning experience.
