Dance teacher training is often aimed at teaching children, adolescents and young adults. Certainly initial teacher training tends to focus on these groups. In recent times some dance examining bodies have introduced something about more mature learners in dance. But on the whole the main focus is still towards growing youngsters rather than growing olders. Nowadays so many adults take part in dance activities that it really makes sense for dance teachers to understand more about key differences in teaching youngsters and say, older people.
