Teacher Assistant Application
Jazzle Teacher Assistant Program
Our Teacher Assistant Program is for Jazzlette & Jazzler dancers interested in assisting our Jazzle Baby and Jazzle Tot dance classes. Assistants will help with the flow of the dance class, help set up props, help guide students during class, give fun reinforcements for correct dance steps and serve as a role model for the Jazzle babies and tots. Assistants will also be expected to provide any other additional assistance that helps with the dance class.
Each dance season teachers will select a limited number of dancers who exhibit the qualities necessary to be a successful teaching assistant

Assistants must arrive to your scheduled class at least 5 minutes prior to the start of class.

Attendance is essential part of this program. If you must miss a class that you are scheduled to assist with you are to notify the studio by either calling
