Guidelines for teaching a PE dance class:
You will be asked to teach a sample class that at least one of the dance faculty will observe before your application will be approved.
Priority is given to dance majors with experience teaching a particular style or assisting in program technique classes.
Prior teaching experience is expected of any prospective teacher.
Classes are 50-75 minutes each (except for 12:30-1:20 classes) and meet once a week during a regular semester. Students receive PE credit for attending at least 8 classes of a 10-class series.
Teachers are responsible for taking attendance regularly (attendance sheets provided by Dance Academic Coordinator) and submitting them to the Coordinator at the end of the semester indicating which students want and are eligible for PE credit.
The number of classes the Dance program can support/offer each semester is limited by time and budget.
Student PE teachers will be paid for two hours a week: to cover preparation time as well as class time.
