The Teacher Training program is comprised of an evening workshop with follow-up opportunities. The goal of this workshop is to share best practices, as well as strategies and tools to help dancers as they embark on the next step of their journey here at the studio as teaching assistants, teachers, and choreographers. It is important for us to set each dancer up for success and support them throughout the year.
As the studio continues to evolve, we realize that investing in our students has resulted in outcomes beyond what we could have ever imagined. We are continually impressed by the creativity, kindness and humility of our dancers. We are very proud of our students and alumni, and this workshop is an opportunity to invest in them.
Leeming DanceWorks has always been a proponent of student choreography. We believe that choreography is an important skill to have as a dancer and teacher and this program allows us to encourage and support our students as they embark on their artistic journey. In this program, senior student choreographers will be paired up with junior/intermediate dancers to create a solo to be performed during the competitive season.
The senior students will be matched with a mentor (senior teacher) who will be there to guide them through the process and ensure a successful first experience. We are proud to have amazing student and alumni choreographers who have been acknowledged for excellence in choreography and pursued careers as choreographers. (Please see Alumni)
