Close Overview

The course was great and all encompassing, but because of the large population of dancers in my class I felt like it was not focused on teaching the general population... there was a lot of focus on the abilities of the dancers in the class.

By Sarah F
I would have appreciated at least 1 or 2 more modules that focused on actually teaching, cueing, and leading a class in a group setting. The self teaching hours are great, but getting feedback along the way on how to structure a class and verbally lead it would have been beneficial. I also would appreciate more worksheets on how to structure a beginner, intermediate, and advanced level class in the block system. - a template to work from. The course was great and all encompassing, but because of the large population of dancers in my class I felt like it was not focused on teaching the general population... there was a lot of focus on the abilities of the dancers in the class.

Overall a great experience
