All great teachers we’ve met like it nerdy… in fact, the nerdier the better. Whether you are working full-time in your local scene, teach at international camps, teach for your local non-profit association, or hold drop-in classes at a university, as a teacher you are passionate about the dance and share the desire to improve. We have created a 5-day seminar that will give you deep insight in how to run your scene and become a better teacher.​

You’ll learn how to:

  • Pedagogy – How to break down and explain dance moves and ideas
  • Didactics – How to create a strong teaching program with good exercises
  • Community – How to get more students to your classes and grow your community
  • Business – How to sustain a dance career and even afford employees

The concepts you’ll learn at this workshop have been tested all around Europe – and they work! In fact, we are so confident in what you are about to sign up for, that we removed all your risk by having a 100% money back guarantee. If you do not feel that you received the value you expected for your money, we’ll give you your money back!

For your inspiration, in this video Ali Taghavi is sharing a concept from a previous edition of Teaching Summit.
