A fantastic learning experience.
Pros: dance lessons with some of the top coaches in the dance world.
Cons: i could have vacation time intermittenly throughout the year
Productive and a continuous environment of learning and experiencing new ways of working and teaching. i felt empowered and enthusiastic about my position. I would start my day by checking messages, following up with phone calls, confirm appointments for the day, communicate with instructors about their private dance lessons and group classes. This was ensure that all activities ran smoothly. I would follow through with any banking matters, check all cash and credit cards transactions, check stationery and other miscellaneous items the studio might need to facilitate staff and students, prepare group schedules if needed, as well as appointment schedule sheets, put together daily cash reports, write up the account payable and accounts receivable from the previous day. From 5:00pm through 9:30pm there was a constant flow of students checking for private lessons and group classes. At the end of night complete the daily cash reports and prep the banking for the following day.
I learnt how to interact and communicate with many people and was able to create a good customer relationships.
My management skills reflected in how efficient the studio was operated.
Both my coworkers and myself had to compromise with each other to have a successful work experience.
The hardest part of the job was keeping a balance so that everyone felt welcomed and inspired to learn how to dance and work in a very hectic environment.
The most enjoyable part of my job was to be able to teach dance and see how the self esteem, composure and confidence that students gained by learning to dance.
