THE BENEFITS OF LIVE MUSICAL ACCOMPANISTS IN DANCE CLASS.

THE BENEFITS OF LIVE MUSICAL ACCOMPANISTS IN DANCE CLASS.
       The incorporation of  a live accompanist, whether it be the classical pianist in ballet class or the sound of live drummers in modern or African class can change the dynamics of your studio curriculum. There is nothing more enlivening than to hear live music start a class and can change the interaction your dancers have with you and the musician while sharpening their focus on the movement you are giving as well as their sense of musicality. In addition, the embedded lesson of dancers learning how to work with a musician and see how dance teachers and musicians speak to each other is a wonderful way for dancers to learn about this very important and essential communicative skill with fellow artists. Obviously, an extra expense which not every studio can afford on a weekly basis for all classes, there are ways you can give your students the experience of a live accompanist without breaking the studio’s budget.

Teaching over the long haul can be a drain, especially if you are teaching a lot of classes and are pushed to create. One of the toughest things teachers face throughout the season is to stay motivated and energized. You are constantly giving and if you are not careful you can drain your battery and teaching can become a struggle. Don't wait until you get to that tipping point! .

DANCE STUDIO OWNERS: TRAINING YOUR STAFF 101

DANCE STUDIO OWNERS: TRAINING YOUR STAFF 101
For many of us our season has just finished. We have had the excitement of the recitals and all end of year performances and although some studios continue running over the summer offering programs for their dancers, it is usually a quieter time as families take their vacations and children go to sleep away camps. Summer is a wonderful time to re-train your staff or to bring new staff members in to train from scratch
