The Teacher Assistant Program is designed to provide students with the ability to learn more about dance through assisting core instructors with teaching. By working at a level lower than their own, dancers improve the basic foundations of their own technique. At the same time, they have the experience of working with children under the tutelage of an experienced professional core instructor.
Greater York Dance uses the “team teaching” concept (Together Everyone Achieves More). This means that student assistants and teachers work hand in hand in teaching students. It is a coordinated effort as everyone joins to serve.
