Student Teacher Training Program
Kohl Academy of Performing Arts is proud to offer specialized courses for advanced dance students aspiring to pursue a dance related career, and who are interested in earning their certification from Dance Masters of America.
The training programs require the student to be enrolled in ballet, tap, and jazz classes and be a dance company member in good standing. The student teacher classes (determined by age) include a study of dance history, dance notation, studio management, and choreography. There is also on the job training in various levels of classes. Since the training programs are based on the Dance Masters of American syllabus, students are prepared to attend the DMA Trainig School in Buffalo, New York. There they can elect to take the DMA exam to receive the teacher certification.
Another option is to audit lower level classes as a student demonstrator. This option is at the discretion of the teacher.
