Should I go for it?

Hey everyone! So, I have a situation and I am in need of some advice. I am going home for the summer and I want to teach some clogging lessons, but I want to do it on my own...not with the local studio that I used to take lessons at. Problem: the local studio is also offering summer lessons, plus the teacher is very territorial. I just don't want to make any enemies, but I do wnat experience teaching dance. What should I do? Just go for it? I hope this makes sense! Any advice would be great. Thanks!

Hook up with a couple dance studios outside the area and teach at their summer camps. Go in with resume in hand - right now, they're making their schedules - and tell them what you want. That's how I got my foot in the door for teaching at summer camps. Summer camps are unique in the fact that it's not a regular class - don't go in expecting to accomplish great things.

If making enemies is a concern, I wouldn't do it.

If you can thicken your skin, I would find a town 10-15 miles away. She will likely still get mad, but it would show a little more respect than being in the same town.

Of course, it depends on the size of your town.

Good luck.

I'd go to a local town, but not the town this teacher is in. Unless your town is really big, is there even enough demand for 2 clogging instructors?

NO LEAVE THE TEACHER ALONE AND TEACH IN YOUR HOME TOWN IN THE WINTER!!!! I've seen this happen before and trust me you're better off not doing it.
