There are many benefits of bringing in guest artists and choreographers to your dance studio. Guest Instructors and Choreographers offer a fresh perspective. Exposing dance students to different styles, ways of teaching and choreography that broadens their movement vocabulary and helps them achieve their dance goals.
For competitive dancers, bringing in a guest choreographer is a fun way to challenge your company to learn quickly, accurately and most of all to give it 100%. There is only a small amount of time that they get to work with the guest teacher, every hour spent with them will ensure the success of their choreography after they leave the studio.
Bringing in working professional dancers, college professors and directors of dance departments to give Master Classes and Educational Q and A’s will enrich student’s knowledge of the dance world beyond recreational and competitive dance. Being exposed to college educated professionals can inspire students to want to learn more about the fundamentals of teaching, choreography and entertainment business.
When hiring a guest teacher, always look at their resume and background to make sure they are a good fit for your studio and students. Depending on what you want them to focus on, a guest instructor can pull from their different backgrounds and experience to inspire a new approach to technique and performance. These opportunities to learn more about the dance industry will help to continue the legacy of dance through teaching, performing or simply inspiring a lifelong love of the arts.
