Dancers must be 12 years of age and at the pre-intermediate level or higher to apply. Through our student teaching program, our dancers receive training on how to teach and inspire young dancers. They serve as role models in the studio and help assist our lead teachers in their instruction and classroom management. Our student teachers pass along their love for dance to our youngest dancers and get in house training on how to be a caring, kind, FUN, and disciplined teacher! Stand out dancers may be evaluated for a substitute teaching position at the age of 16 upon lead teacher recommendation and test evaluation by the studio owner, Gina Koch.
