Teaching dance to kids is rewarding

Student-teaching dance classes is one of the great things I look forward to on Saturday mornings. I help teach two dance classes for little girls. The dance classes include both ballet and tap. We play a game every class, practice ballet positions and our dance routines for the big recital.

It makes me happy to assist little girls in something I love to do. It's a fun experience to get ready and practice our recital dance for the big day. Being a student teacher is a responsible job. Some girls are nervous and some are excited to be dancing in front of their families and friends.

It is comforting to know that their dance teacher, Amanda, and their student teacher are on the side of the stage dancing with them.

I do my student-teaching at Dance Expressions in Deer Park, but I am sure you can do this at your studio, too.
