The most important quality in a dance teacher?
Passion for understanding the human body and its physiology.
Passion for meeting new dancers and the challenge of different types of learners.
Passion and knowing how far to push without breaking.
Passion for music and its relationship with dance.
Passion for passing the tradition of dance on to the next generation.
Passion brings the element of theatrics to class, transforms the room and focuses dancers on being in the moment. A passionate teacher lives and breathes dance and makes you want to love dance that much more.
A teacher without passion is a like a candle without a flame.
