People are talking...
“I am so happy to have had the opportunity to be a part of the Online Dance Teacher Training Program. It is a rigorous program which is what I was looking for, yet the flexibility of the online format made it possible for me to fit it around my work and family schedule. The aspects of this program that I found the most rewarding were getting to learn from a professor who is very experienced and welcoming with her teaching style, getting access to reading material that is quite comprehensive, and most importantly of all for me, were the discussion sessions with the other students where we were able to share our experiences and ideas and to learn from each other.”
“Extremely well developed”
“The online dance teacher training program allowed me to study something that I’m passionate about without having to change my current lifestyle. The program is extremely well developed providing an understanding of the basic elements of dance education and expanding from there. Great, informed dance teachers are formed through this program!”
“Exceeded my Expectations”
“It’s important for me to be connected and continue to stay fresh and current in my teaching practice. Canada’s National Academy of Dance Education supports all my initiatives. I am excited to meet other professionals aiming to do the same. This course has exceeded my expectation. I am challenged, inspired and reminded daily of the value of continued education. I’m supported and encouraged by Jolanta and motivated by my peers. I’ve never done online education before. I’m surprised how close-knit it feels.”
“I am loving my time in the Online Teacher Training Program. As a dance educator for over fifteen years, it’s so nice to get some fresh ideas, and to go back to the basics and start new. Part One covers a broad range of topics dealing with classroom management and childhood development. All these things are great starting points for anyone whether they are a new educator, or a seasoned one. Thank you to Jolanta for providing the dance world with this opportunity for educators to learn and grow.”
“Perfect (for)… a hectic life”
“Within the first week of beginning the Online Dance Teacher Training Program I had implemented what we were studying into my own dance classes. The ODTTP is perfect for any dance educator who has a hectic life but also desires to stay relevant in dance education.”
