As promised, here is some feedback on the Hip hop accredited Class which has just completed.
I am very happy with the class. I thoroughly enjoyed it: it was challenging (which I was looking for) and sometimes intense, very satisfying (to learn moves that I had not learnt before. Not to mention the fact that hiphop is my favourite dance and music too), and professional. I particularly liked the professionalism of both Alan and yourself. I remember a few weeks after the class had started you intervened to give us your own feedback. Alan is extremely professional and it is humbling and special to be taught by someone like him who is at the top of his game. Please feel free to send this email to Alan too. Big thank you for his teaching, patience, professionalism and humour :-)
'I would like to say what a thoroughly wonderful time I had doing your LOCN courses. I have experienced in the past very poor teaching and I am pleased to say that I did not experience this at The Basement Dance Studio. The teaching was first class and it was great for someone like me who suffers from dyslexia and sensory problems (worsened by stress) to work in a totally supportive, constructive, inclusive and empathetic environment. The teachers were able to teach in a way that progressed students exceptionally fast without giving negative feedback which is so important these days but also rare to find in most teachers. The Basement employs and consequently is turning out excellent teachers, more people should be encouraged to take the LOCN teaching course at The Basement as we need more teachers in London like the ones I was lucky enough to be taught by. Information is given clearly to students and it is amazing how much you learn in a very short space of time.'
And to conclude I would mention that, as ever, I continue coming to the Basement Dance Studio because it's chilled out and with no pretence. Everyone's genuine and friendly.
Thanks again Judy. And thank you for all the work you do to manage the Accredited classes. Let me know whenever you organise the workshop or set up an advance hiphop class - I'll be the first to join!
'I have just successfully completed the teacher training course which was run every Saturday for ten weeks! I wasn't sure whether to do the course as I am from Ireland and I would be travelling over and back for ten weeks which not only would be tiresome but very expensive! After completing the course I would probably do it all over again!
This was my first wknd since completing the course and I feel lost, I've met so many amazing people I would like to thank them all as I would not have gotten through it without them!
Finally I would like to thank Judy, without you none of this would be possible!'
'I found the Dance Teacher Training course challenging both physically and mentally. You need to be able to focus and feel comfortable "opening yourself up" in order to grow and handle the more creative components. You also need to be organised and determined and if you do.... you will find the course satisfying and rewarding.'
I already teach dancing but my classes have moved up several levels after doing the course! Not only am I a better teacher but my confidence as a teacher has soared! If I said it was easy I would be lying! It was challenging but thankfully we all got through it!
