O2B Kids Dance instructor

Why O2B?

O2B strives to open minds, improve self-confidence, develop social skills, strengthen bodies, and above all provide a safe environment for kids to have fun and explore! That is why I want to be a part of the O2B community.

The arts are a very important part of our world, and dance has many benefits. Dance can teach kids how to channel vast amounts of energy, relieve stress, express themselves, improve discipline, build self-confidence, introduce different cultures, and provide physical exercise. These benefits match perfectly with O2B's core purpose and is the reason why I want to be a dance instructor for their organization.

What makes me qualified?

I have been dancing since I was 3 years old and have studied all kinds of dance styles including ballet, pointe, jazz, hip hop, tap, contemporary, modern, ballroom, Irish, Scottish, hula, African, and Greek. When I was in middle school I taught a summer dance camp for kids ages 4 to 10. It was so much fun choreographing their routines, making costumes, composing set lists, and keeping track of them throughout the day. I have been in charge of dance groups throughout college too whether it's teaching a class for Dancin' Gators club or leading teams for Sigma Kappa sorority. Coming up with choreography and teaching technique would be no problem.

I realize that there is more to being an instructor than dancing, though. As a business major, I have learned through classes and internships how to build rapport with people, organize schedules, and think on my feet. It is important to remain flexible, especially when working with kids.

Overall, working at O2B would not only benefit me and help me continue in my dance career, but it also benefits the kids. I can teach them all of the styles and techniques I have learned throughout my time as a dancer that will strengthen them in mind and body. After all, this job is all about the kids!
