Of the many things that make taking dance classes great, having a great teacher is one of the most important. A great teacher should truly love being a dance instructor. This love shows in many ways, including enthusiasm, flexibility, and kindness.
Great dance teachers take dance very seriously. This doesn’t mean that they aren’t capable of fun during dance; it means that they truly enjoy what they do. When this is true, their enthusiasm will be palpable. They’ll be energetic and ready to dedicate the time it takes you teach you what you want to know. A good teacher is ready to share her or his love of dance.
Everyone learns differently. This is something that a dance teacher must accommodate and it’s not an easy thing to do when you have a classroom full of people. A great dance teacher knows how to present the dance in ways that work for everyone and how to make sure there’s time for when individuals need a little one-on-one time. This flexibility in teaching can take a lot of work to learn and implement.
We have all had a teacher who was less than friendly. As a result, we all know just how important it is to find a teacher with whom you can connect, who is friendly, understanding, patient, and kind. Learning something new, like dance, takes time and effort, and it can be frustrating. Having a kind teacher makes tackling the dance and the frustration much easier. These teachers are also supportive in your efforts; they reinforce your desire to learn and inspire you to continue doing so.
