A successful dance program is based on a strong foundation of clearly defined learning goals or objectives, a diverse array of activities, and a good understanding on the developmental needs and interests of the students.
In this workshop, I aim to help you design your own original course curriculum that is rich and disciplined, yet fun and exciting for both you and your students!
This course can help you have better organization and class flow, retain more students and gain confidence in your teaching abilities! Check out the free previews below.
