Although it focuses on fitness trainers, this article from WELL + GOOD resonates with me and I want to share it in support of my fellow dance teachers who have had to adapt in order to pass along their knowledge with the dance community. I started Ballet With Hilary as a response to the studio where I worked being shut down due to Covid-19. The studio wasn't providing classes or information to the students, who largely felt left in the dark. Ballet With Hilary organically evolved as a means to simply give back and provide a service that was sorely missing for my students. My wish is for more studios to wholeheartedly support their staff and champion their excellence and successes - this would reflect a progressive mindset that would no doubt be mutually beneficial for both parties.
