Student Helpers/Demonstrators

At BSD, we encourage our older students (7th grade and above) to be student helpers/demonstrators for pre-school and kinder level classes.  The younger students love their older helpers.  Our student helpers/demonstrators help the instructors keep the children organized in class, demonstrate tricks, run music, get parents if needed and hold hands on sad days.  Student helpers do not teach or spot tricks in acro class.  This is also a wonderful opportunity for our older students to work with children and share their love of dance.
