THE TEACHING APPRENTICESHIP
Dance Experience Performing Arts Studio, LLC offers an Apprenticeship Program for novice dance instructors. They are new teachers & advance students in training who will assist, teach, and substitute for our classes alongside a professional faculty member as their mentor. They will also choreograph, participate in shows, and assist with the front desk. Their goal is to learn more about dance teaching methods and how to apply them with certain age groups, all while gaining the real hands-on experience in the classroom.
