Teacher’s Assistant Program
The Teacher’s Assistant Program is a leadership program at DAU. We train and develop our older, advanced dancers to work in a classroom setting, provide extra assistance to our DAU Staff and cultivate a positive experience for all of our DAU dancers. This program allows our students to learn from each other and to develop as leaders of the future. To be a teacher’s assistant at DAU, dancers must apply through the office and be selected based on previous dance criteria. Additionally, TAs meet a strict set of requirements each year which include training sessions, lesson planning, consistent class attendance, and an annual commitment to their assigned TA classes. Our TAs volunteer anywhere from one to five hours each week. DAU Teacher’s Assistants are extremely hardworking and dedicated to DAU. Instructructing and caring for students, along with advancing their own education are the key drivers in their endless pursuit.
