    I’m stuck about making my choices for college and have no idea what to pick! I’m interested in becoming a primary school teacher but I also love dance and would love to teach that! I know that either way I’d need to get the teaching qualification anyway, but what do i need and is there anything extra (besides experience) that I would need to become a Dance teacher? thank you

    If you can then do dance! Other than that just pick subjects you are interested in and ones that will get you onto the uni course you want to do. All you need to be a teacher is a C or above in Engish and Math GCSE and a good degree! Most teacher training courses require you to have at least two weeks recent experience working in a school, preferably in the subject you want to teach, but it has to be recent so I wouldn't worry about that just yet!

    i’m so scared that because i specialise in Street dance that dance a level is based off ballet and contemporary and a lot of the theory is behind that genre which is why i don’t feel interested enough to take it! As i’d want to study Street and there is no certain possibility i’d be able to do that. My main question was that would i be able to teach street based off experience with a teaching qualification? thank you so much for helping me, i’m starting to calm down and realise my life won’t end x

    there is a BTEC dance course but then i’d still have to choose between teaching qualification or dance! plus the BTEC still specialises in ballet and contemporary and experience in those areas (which i don’t have) i’m currently taking GCSE dance and it’s very different to what i’ve been used to since the age of 4
