What kind of dance background do I need to teach people with PD effectively?

Teachers come from a variety of backgrounds, but most successful Dance for PD teachers have trained intensely in one or more dance forms, including ballet, modern, tap, classical Indian, flamenco, or jazz and are comfortable and experienced teachers in one or more of these forms. Many of our teachers have had careers as professional performers, and are able to bring that experience, and existing choreographic repertory, into their classes. Others are choreographers, use their imaginative processes to develop new material and structured improvisations for their classes. Good Dance for PD classes draw on a range of styles and materials so that the classes are as stimulating, diverse and imaginative as possible, but we always encourage teachers to teach what they know, and to teach whatever that is with creativity, passion, clarity, warmth and humor.
