TMI Design and Consulting: The Growing Dance Educator
Organization: TMI Design and Consulting
Location: Atlanta, GA


Starting, rejuvenating, or maintaining a dance program can be challenging. Especially when you don’t have a roadmap. This 6-week self-led course will provide a foundation to build sustainability within your dance program. The course is led by Tamara Irving. 


Tamara Irving spent 12 years in the classroom and has over 20 years of professional dance and theater experience -including Disney’s “The Lion King”. She's taken her combined 32 years of educational and arts experience and used it to transform and advocate for her programs, engage her students, and continue her own personal development. Tamara is excited to announce a new course for dance educators, The Growing Dance Educator. In this course, dance educators will learn strategies to create sustainable dance programs while also growing as dance educators themselves.

So what happens when you actually enjoy your job as a dance educator? What's next? How do you continue to grow your program while growing and sustaining yourself? The course is self led with lots of resource downloads to provide you with the ultimate professional development support.
