Dance Teacher Advice

Q: What is it like working as a Dance Teacher?

Dance Teacher in Birmingham:
"Advice."
Always be flexible, and open-minded. Approach every new teaching role as an opportunity to learn, as well as to engage with and stimulate your students. Don't communicate negativity. We all get frustrated with our students, but channel this energy into determination - work hard to improve on their skills and technique, to inspire them and bring them to focus. THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. Don't remain stuck and isolated in a single approach or method. Keep your body and mind open. Have resolve. You will know if/and when it's right to move on. Never undercut yourself, or under-sell. Make sure your basic rate of pay is in keeping with the general standards set by authorised umbrella bodies. Talk to other dance teachers, network, and support one another. If you work for £10 an hour, open negotiations to change this. If you work for £15 do the same. If you set the bar for low wages, it will stick. And this undermines both your abilities, and self-worth.
