Recently after ballet class I was asked how I became a ballet instructor.
I’ve always had a passion for dancing. Almost all of my teen years were spent at the studio. After school I would go straight to afternoon ballet class, then do homework, then take evening classes. I wanted more. I asked my teacher if I could help with the younger classes. As I watched my instructor I became fascinated by the science and knowledge of teaching ballet. I started taking notes and writing down pages of questions. At the end of the day she would patiently answer all my questions and in time asked if I was interested in teaching.
Well I guess I’ve come full circle because now my students are asking me some of the same questions. That started my thinking.
