As a dance teacher you have several different studios you can choose to teach in. If you have freedom to express your artistic style through your teaching, the main difference will be how the organization of the studio affects your satisfaction and ability to focus on your teaching.
There are several places you can teach dance around the toronto area.
Here are reasons why dance teachers choose to teach at our schools:
1. Small class sizes
We limit class sizes to make classes easier to control and monitor for teachers and to give more personalized attention to students. Our classes for ages 3-5 are limited to a maximum of 12 students per class. Our classes for ages 6 and up are limited to a maximum of 16 students per class.
2. Full time administrative support
In many studios there is no receptionist on duty. This means that the teachers are faced with administration details when they should be concentrating on teaching. We have full time front desk administrative staff during class times to handle routine questions and details that arise.
3. Floating Marley dance floors in all studios
We use professional floating Marley dance floors in all of our studios. Our dance floors rest on a system of 700 high density foam blocks. This dance floor helps prevent injuries and fatigue. A good quality floor is a consideration if you are going to be teaching for a few hours each day. A supportive quality floor allows you to protect your most important assets – your body and your ability to teach.
4. Extras are taken care of
We try to take care of all of the extra details throughout the year. Teachers are not required to collect any fees or do any costume measuring. We also take care of all the organization of yearly recitals. We try to have everything well organized so the teachers are free to concentrate on teaching and nothing else.
