Minute Masterclass Episode 29

Welcome to your one-minute masterclass. I’m Andrea Trench, founder of DiscoverDance. Earlier this year, we were thrown into the online space and made miracles happen within a matter of days, if not hours for some. Although many teachers are returning to in-person instruction, online teaching is still a reality for others worldwide. Thankfully, we’ve learned some things over the past several months that have helped us create a new kind of learning that we never expected. 

The biggest shift has to happen inside ourselves with unlimited amounts of patience, grace, and a set of new expectations. Even though virtual classes look different, it doesn’t mean children aren’t learning. The reality is that we cannot control what happens on the other side of the screen. What we can control is our attitude, our energy, and our preparedness as their teacher. Shifting the focus from teaching dance class to connecting with our dancers will change your perspective, release pressure, and make the experience more enjoyable for all. Through this lens your students will feel seen, safe, and loved. Learning will happen through this connection and I’ll share how in upcoming minute masterclass episodes.
