Reflective practice is a wonderful way to help ourselves to develop and progress our dance teaching practice. It is a way of continually learning and developing through our own practice. At the end of a teaching session we can reflect on what we did. We can consider the things that worked well and those that did not work so well. Honesty in our reflections is vital and it can take some practise to develop the objectivity that we need. It is worth it though because our teaching benefits enormously from quality reflective practice. And our students benefit too, of course.
