Studio J Assistant Teacher Program (SJ ATP)

Studio J's Assistant Teacher Program is an excellent way for our dancers to be more involved with dance in a different way.  Our training program is a way to help them develop both dance and life skills. Our trainees will:

  • Gain the ability to break down and communicate the “how and why” of the movement

  • Learn notation and documentation methods

  • Develop leadership and mentoring skills
