Alisa’s Dance Academy offers a Student Teaching Assistant (STA) program that inspires young adults to become responsible and respectful; giving them the opportunity to succeed in creating well rounded life skills.
Our Student Teaching Assistants are invited to participate in the program based on teacher recommendations, technical ability, and maturity. They must also be responsible, respectful to fellow classmates as well as students they are assisting, and loyal to the studio. STAs go through an orientation program and training class prior to start date. They are trained not only to assist in classes but also how to correctly instruct students.
Our assistants are also held to high standards of dance training and many are involved in our Protégée Pre- Professional training program. They are trained in our Student Assistant Training program with emphasis on treating all students fairly and with respect, to be exemplary in their own conduct, and always bring a positive attitude to the classroom. They must display good personal attributes, and carry good grades in school. They are there to help the teacher, help the students, and be an extra pair of eyes.
Becoming a STA is a great opportunity. They learn time management, how to multi-task, how to handle great responsibility, and gain social skills. There is a limited amount of STA positions available and candidates must meet all requirements. Remember that Student Teaching Assistants must have had prior dance training and have achieved an intermediate or above level of ability.
