Day One of Teacher Training Workshop

Today was Day One of the Teacher Training Workshop for my Jazz Dance Technique & Syllabus (by the way, Genevieve gets the Frequent Flyer Mile Award for coming all the way from South Africa). It was a good day and I came away thinking about my prior blog: Embracing Beginner’s Mind.

There is something so vital and special about teachers who are willing to continue to expand their understanding. Each of them, by virtue of attending a workshop such as this, demonstrate the idea of beginner’s mind. In working with the teachers today, in hearing their stories and in witnessing their passion for teaching, I learned new ideas and found myself, in turn, inspired. So, I thank you all and hope the rest of the days bring continued growth, sharing and learning.
