I've been reviewing how to make a lesson more enjoyable, while allowing myself to get to know the student better and present opportunities for them to get what they're looking for through dance. Yesterday I applied what I'd learned so far, and had possibly the best lesson I'd ever taught! The couple had a fantastic time, and I felt I maintained the flow throughout the lesson, far better than I had before. They didn't purchase a program, but they were very enthusiastic at the end and said they definitely planned on continuing after going over the options. Time will tell if they do, but I know that raising my game will bring in more students in the long run.
