Yesterday marked the first day of the new dance season. This season makes my eighth year as a teacher at my “dance alma mater”. I love teaching dance. This artistic expression is one of my passions in life and I get to share that with kids from ages 3-18. Three nights a week I get to train young dancers and teach them about this great art form. I also like to think I teach them a little about life as well…#lifelessonsfromMsKelly.
I teach kids from all levels of experience as a recreational dance teacher. What does that mean? It means the kids that I teach take class for fun and have a recital at the end of the year. The classes I teach are not like what you may or may not have seen on Dance Moms. My kids don’t compete, they take their time learning their end of the year routine, and are simply doing it for fun. With all of this said, there are still some things that I feel that parents and students should learn about this dance world.
