Lynn Hadden-Quinn and David Bovat from LHQ Danceforce attended The Fundamentals of Teaching Dance Workshop August 13th and 14th.
This educational workshop was offered by the Associated Dance Teachers of New Jersey and covered syllabi for Children's Work, Ballet, Jazz, & Tap as well as Basic Anatomy, Music Theory, Dance Terminology, and Choreography Concepts. Lynn and David also gained hints & insights in preparation for the ADTNJ Certification Exam.
The goal of The Fundamentals of Teaching Dance Workshop is for dance professionals to come together and share many years of teaching experience and their passion for dance education. Too many dance teachers, although very talented dancers, are not properly educated on how and what to teach in a dance class. The ADTNJ believes that “all dance educators should be well rounded, certified, and on the same page.”
Because of the extensive training of this workshop, LHQ will be able to elevate their level of dance education by adapting a cohesive set of syllabi for their entire staff to use. Lynn continues to treasure the importance of dance education overall and the opportunity to strengthen the fundamentals and core values of dance throughout her studio.
