Get ready to take your teaching skills to a new dimension! In this workshop, I will share my secrets to teaching multilevel classes, which I have been doing successfully for years. I will show you how to make your classes accessible to beginner dancers, while continually challenging experienced students. You will learn how to incorporate three major components of successful multilevel classes, plus instructional strategies for teaching technique as well as choreography. When you learn how to teach multilevel classes, you will not only become a more skilled dancer and teacher, you will benefit financially!
This class is a combination of audio and video with written notes and practice activities.
