Teachers have the opportunity to be an enormous impact on their students lives. it is our job to inspire students to dream and grow as well as prepare them for the world we live in. Every student will lead a different path in life, so it’s imperative that teachers do whatever they can to give each student something beyond the walls of the classroom. Students should be exposed to as many options and opportunities as they can for this reason. As a dance teacher I find that the multidisciplinary art of dance holds many life lessons that have the potential to guide students to be successful in their endeavors, and I try to include them within my teaching. In this way, class doesn’t just become only about dance but about life as well.
