Workshop Description: Teaching is a noble profession that carries an enormous responsibility. Students walk into the studio and give you their bodies. The relationship between teacher and student is rich with possibilities, however, without awareness, opportunities for teaching can be missed. This workshop aims to illuminate and cultivate positive possibilities for learning while reducing common hurdles. Communication is a core principal of effective teaching, and during our time together we will develop the vocabulary we use to convey information, cue movement, and relay corrections. In addition, a spectrum of issues will be covered to help teachers synthesize the various skills needed to be effective.
