To begin, I want it clear I interpret "dance instructor round-table
meeting" as a chance for people to compare notes on dance, in particular
the teaching of dance. Not a chance for people to "pick my brain" about
documentaion for a particular dance. I would like this to be a meeting
where I improve myself by comments from other instructors, not to say I
don't grow from sharing my knowlage. I'm happy to let people "pick"
during guild meeting or where else I'm teaching dance. I hope this
disscusion leads me to teach teaching, not just performance.
This should work. We can try and gather the dance teachers of Ansteorra
and plan for advancing our art. I know many groups would like to begin
dance but do not have the experience/resources to begin a strong guild.
Having taken over a strong guild numbering over 30, I was surprised at
how hard it was to begin a new guild in the neighboring barony. I'd
like to see us put together an idea of what we would like to disscuse at
Coronation. As well, we should encourage as many local dancers and
teachers to attend in our areas. I know I get tiered of having to call
straight for 2 hours. Thats why a try and encourage (force :) ) those I
know can teach. Hey, everyone needs a break sometimes.
I'd like to touch on:
Running a dance guild
Starting a dance guild
Introduction to new styles (no ECD scares people)
Indoor vs Outdoor Events
Though this looks like alot, I think Ansteorra needs inprovement on all
these topics. The first four are the most in need of work, the rest
improved by those four. Comments? What would people like to see
