We love our bright, energetic students and desire for them to have energy, enthusiasm and love for dance as much as we do.  Our Student Assistant Program is an exciting commitment to fellow dancers as a key member of our classroom.  DCSA members will learn valuable skills as an assistant to other dancers and provide role model behavior to those around them.  As a dancer, you'll have the opportunity to acquire knowledge about the workings of a class and just how teachers teach.

Description

Being invited to assist your dance teacher in classes is a great honor. It usually means that he/she has observed characteristics like your dedication to dance, your willingness and cooperation in class, and perhaps your caring or compassionate nature. Perhaps, in you, your instructor may see the spirit of a future teacher and would like to cultivate and nurture these qualities. As does “great power,” great honor comes with “great responsibilities.”
