1st steps in teaching: What are your motives?
What motivates you to teach belly dance ?
This is part two of the ongoing "1st steps in teaching" series for the belly dance business academy. In this workshop we will look at what motivates people to become belly dancers and how to adapt your classes to better suit your motivations.
Sara Shrapnell spent 12 years teaching, performing and hosting events in the UK before moving to the Bay Area of San Francisco in 2011. Her classes are known for their humor, detailed breakdowns and cultural context. She adapts her lessons to suit the dancers, their needs and aims. Students who have studied with Sara have gone on to teach and perform in all styles of belly dance and many have made their living through performance or teaching. Sara’s books “Teaching Belly Dance” and “Becoming a Belly Dancer: From Student to Stage” are available on Amazon.
