About Assistant Teachers Program

Become An ADAPT Certified Assistant Teacher

This course is designed to help students understand the responsibilities of a good dance teacher’s assistant as well as what they should expect from the dance studio in terms of compensation, training and job satisfaction.

The faculty will talk about different age ranges, different types of classroom activities and responsibilities in a dance class. They will also give A.T.P. students a chance to actively assist, observe others assisting, give feedback, and receive feedback. Additionally, A.T.P. students are offered dance classes at their level to enhance their personal training.

At the end of the course, each participant receives a certificate of completion presented during ADAPT T.T.S. with their peers and the T.T.S. participants present to applaud their efforts.
