Winter TA Tryouts
Looking to take your dancing to the next level? Friendly, love to dance, and love to help others? Wishing there were some way you could give back to the club?
If so, look no further! In January we are holding tryouts for winter term teaching assistants! For several Sundays in January you'll be given a professionally taught crash course on dance technique, as well as the chance to mingle and dance with the current TA Corps. If selected to be a teaching assistant, you'd get some very cool perks, including:
- Weekly TA training: professionally taught classes to teach you steps and dance technique so you can shine
- Admission into all Newcomer 1, Newcomer 2, and Pre-Bronze classes free of charge
The chance to perform at TA First Waltz at the term-end formal. Rock-star status among your fellow club members. And more!
Sound like something you'd be interested in? Talk to one of your TAs or instructors on what it's like to be a TA. And once they've convinced you, you can see the Executive at your class for an application form, or print the application form yourself.
Sound like something you'd be interested in? Fill out an application form and either email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, or bring it to the Executive at your class!
Forms are due at the end of November.
