Leaders. Followers. Juniors. Seniors. Beginners. World champions. We may wear different labels, but there is more in dance that connects us than divides us, and one of the most important connecting threads of all is how much our lives can be enriched by the influence of a truly great teacher.
That’s why Dance Today has decided to launch an annual competition celebrating the best dance teachers in the world. Whether they’re incredibly passionate, have the patience of a saint, are able to explain the most mind-boggling of figures or believe in you when you don’t even believe in yourself, we want to hear about them. Any style, any level and anywhere – there are no limits, as long as they mean something to you.
So, if you think your teacher, past or present, deserves recognition for their incredible work and dedication, we’d like you to nominate them. All you have to do is get in touch with the magazine, by post, email, Twitter or Facebook, telling us about your teacher and why you’d love to see them win Dance Today Teacher of the Year 2013. We’ll announce the shortlisted candidates and overall winner in our August issue.
The Teacher of the Year will win:
- A specially created trophy
- A magazine cover, and a feature about them and their studio
- A year’s free subscription to Dance Today and sister magazine Dancing Times
- A pair of tickets to a West End dance show
- A year’s free subscription to DSI-TV
- A selection of CDs from Maestro Direct
…as well as unprecedented bragging rights, so get your entries in now!
