On teaching dance

Do read this great post on Asharah’s blog on the responsibilities of an instructor.  I was going to write about this myself, but she’s done it so well, there doesn’t seem much point now!

Her post pretty much sums up my attitude to my duties as a teacher, especially this line:  “I teach because I feel I have a duty to give my students the knowledge that I have collected, because if I don’t synthesize my knowledge and offer it, what good is it doing for me alone?”

    Yes.

    “…we also have a duty to continue our own training”. I have a blog post percolating on this!

    So true, and in my case something I regard as highly necessary!
    I look forward to your post once it’s percolated 🙂
