DLTC Rave . . .
Dreams Dance Academy,
St. Charles, IL
My very first DanceLife Teacher Conference was in 2013! On the plane ride there, I kept thinking, What am I doing spending this money right now? I was negotiating my first studio lease at the time. I ended up signing the dotted line on my lease and faxed it while I was there!
On the plane ride home, my thoughts shifted to, This was the best decision to come here. I remember coming home and putting so much of what I learned into place to open my first studio space just 1 1/2 months later!
I have attended many other conferences as well as seminars at the DanceLife Retreat Center. Every one is better than the last. I am so thankful for all the tools and knowledge Rhee Gold and his organizations have provided me with over the years, as well as some amazing friendships and colleagues who I can always turn to for advice!
DDA would not be what it is today without this in my life #dltcstilldancing
Real teachers’ classes focused on the how and why to teach the curriculum. The classroom track features intermediate and advanced work that includes warm-up, barre, progressions, combinations, choreo workshops, improvisation, technique, classroom management, special education and a ton of teaching inspiration to take with you.
Early Childhood & Children's Track
A focus on curriculum, classoom concepts, combinations and more for the age 6 and under students. This track will also incorporate age 7-10 children’s work in a variety of styles. Included are sessions for teaching children with learning differences and disabilities. We are proud to assist attendees in promoting the philosophy that every "body" can dance.
There has never been a greater shift in studio ownership than what we have experienced this year. The DLTC is on top of it with the strategies, business concepts and speakers who will help you survive and thrive. Focus on growth, new programs, enrollment expansion, cross-selling, organizational systems, staff training, marketing, financial realities, leadership skills and so much more.
You'll only find this track at the DLTC. We know how valuable an office team is to your success, This new curriculum will help your team become pros at customer service, conversion training, scheduling, communication, time-management, division of responsibility, identifying expectations, and more.
