Student Assistants & Student Ambassadors
DDA Leadership Academy
"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more...you are a leader."
We strongly believe in providing our students with opportunities to gain leadership skills, and especially encourage our young girls who may have entrepreneurial dreams! The skills and lessons they will gain from these roles are qualities they will carry with them throughout their lives. That is why we offer our students the following opportunities. It is the DDA way. Read on to learn more.
Student Assistants and Assistant Teachers
Student Assistants assist the instructor with classes and receive hands on teacher training. This is a great opportunity to learn how teachers plan before class, run class, and all the in’s and out’s of teaching and working at a studio! We may also ask for Assistants for special events and birthday parties. Once you are 16 years old and have completed at least one full year of assisting, you are eligible to become an Assistant Teacher and will have opportunities to sub classes and do more on your own – if we feel you are ready.
In some cases, we may graduate you to this program at 15 years old.
Student Ambassadors assist around the studio and at events by: being greeters during the first week of classes, activity assistants at festival booths, behind the scenes during recital time, assist with giving back and volunteer initiatives at the studio...and any other odds and ends that come up throughout the year. Do you dream of owning a studio one day or love being a leader? Then this is a program for you!
