Any Dance Teaching Schools?

Hopefully, I plan to teach pre-professional dance someday. I found a few dance teaching schools near my area, but just out of curiosity, are there any dance schools that are for people who want to teach pre-professional or do you need to join a formal company? Can I even learn to teach pre-profess.? You can name places anywhere in the U.S. because I don't want to give my home state away.

I really think professional dance experience helps when teaching pre-pro and pros how to dance, but it is also extremely essential to learn how to teach kids the foundations and know what they have to know before they go pre-pro.

The more you can dance in different companies, in different shows, in different environments, for different choreographers and teachers, the better opportunity you will have in following your desired career path. That isn't always necessarily learned in college.
