Teaching assistant

Recommended Posts

Hi! I will be a teachers assistant at my studio for the little kids classes some are 2-3 and others are 3 1/2-5. I have helped teach class before, but I wasn't doing much then I was just demonstrating and telling them to be quiet. Now it'll be more involved and I have to give corrections etc. Does anyone have any advice on how to correct little kids in a way that they will understand?

I don’t really think that a young dancer teaching assistant should be asked to offer explanations to very young children with very little training unless the assistant has been trained how to do that.

Fortunately it wasn't as involved as I thought it would be! I was mostly telling the kids to stay quiet and watch the teacher haha. It was a lot of fun! I didn't have to correct anyone that was a miscommunication.
