wat do u look 4 in a teacher.

when you hire a professional contractor to build your roof you want his qualifications, references and people who use him over and over again. Contractors are proud to show off their accomplishments, Dance teachers too. So my question to dancers
what do you ask of a teacher when you interview them to give you instruction?

1 to be competent
2 to be pedagogical
3 to be inflexible (he or she must say what goes wrong when I am dancing)

You ask them to be flexible, understanding, competent and most importantly to be a good dancer themselves (awards will tell you this)!

A very common mistake is to evaluate teaching skills with performance skills.

The 2 ARE mutually exclusive .

The competancy of elucidating the nuances of " dance ", in a manner which is crystal clear, is THE prime requisite .

trophies do not a teacher make !!
