I am signing because I am a dancer myself and sometimes at conventions or when I am visiting other studios then I can tell that some of the teachers are not prepared they seem stressed and start yelling or their dances are really just blobs of movement! There is a studio in Sterling that is TERRIBLE!! My friend goes there and she says that she has all her splits when really her feet are sickled and her feet bent and she says that her teachers praise her and say she is the best in her class! And her style of ballet her feet are turned in. Honestly if my ballet teacher saw her they would expect that she has never taken ballet lesson before!! And she has spent 3 years wasting energy doing ‘dance’ this NEEDS to stop
Qualified dance teachers have spend years training. Spent own money and time to start up and continue their dance schools which entails not only teaching but all aspects of running own business.Should be respected and not have to compete with non qualified teachers.
