Create Structure, Content & Pace for Beginner to Advanced Dancers
Whether you are a new or experienced belly dance teacher, this workshop aims to train you in how to meet the needs of students at every stage of their dance development.
Students at different levels of experience and ability have different needs and expectations. It is your job as the instructor to, not only meet those needs, but to anticipate them – within reason, of course. While everyone learns differently and has different motivations for taking belly dance classes, students share general needs and interests in common that arise typically at the same points along the dance journey.
In this workshop, you will learn about creating a class experience to meet student needs, interests and expectations at different levels of experience and ability. You will be guided in how to create the appropriate experience for beginner to advanced level instruction.
This detailed course aims to help you,
- Clarify and organize information
- Save you time on lesson-planning
- Improve student progress and retention
- Build your reputation as a skilled instructor
