What a week – wow!
Rachel taught a warm-up class on Monday and sections of the warm-up were also taught by me and the Anjali dancers.
Then we split into two separate teaching teams and I worked with Nick and Jason to create a lesson plan. We each took on a role such as dance leader, dance support or demonstrator and we taught the other half of the company and received feedback. We then planned a workshop for our weekly Open Class all together.
When I taught the Open Class I had support from the others and it all went well. My voice projection was better and my confidence has built up well. I taught well and loved it. Everyone now believes in me.
The following day we looked at cool-downs and each company member taught a small section of cool down.
On Wednesday we looked at safe touch and improvisation and making and setting contact duets which will help with future workshops.
I had individual feedback from Rachel with personal things to work on. Rachel thinks that I am doing well and I really enjoying our work together.
