M.A. DANCE DIRECTOR TRAINING
M.A. Dance conducts great director workshops during summer camps. Each director is provided  with a comprehensive manual including several ideas concerning:
  • Fund Raisers
  • Choreography
  • Tryouts
  • Costuming
  • Competitions
  • Teaching and Polishing Routines
  • Dance Technique                        
  • Flag, Rifle, Majorette Basics
  • Time Management
  • Team Building and Motivation
  • Working with the administration
This year, at many of our camps, directors/coaches will be able to participate in activities with their students that promote team unity and leadership.  Naturally, all directors and coaches are more than welcome to attend any classes offered at the camp.  Each director/coach attending will receive a beautiful portfolio, a training manual complete with routine notes, and a free set of CDs of the music.  Dance Directors and/or Auxiliary Directors bringing at least 10 students to camp or conduct a private camp with M.A. Dance, will receive a FREE summer routine video. Those who bring 3-9 students to camp will be able to purchase a summer routine video for $200. This routine video is never sold to any director or group who does not attend a M.A. summer camp.  What a valuable resource for learning more material throughout the year!  No one else in the industry provides this bonus offer.

Each director who attends summer camp will receive a printed certificate giving credit for 12 hours of staff development training.  In many school districts, this certificate will count towards in-service training. Just think, your students can be learning material for the upcoming season while you sharpen your skills in our Marching Auxiliary/M.A. Dance Director program.

If you are not familiar with the superior staff and product offered at an M.A. camp, we strongly suggest that you call for a FREE Promo Video and see our outstanding STAFF perform as well as a  preview of summer camp.  Our toll free number is: (800)-977-7933.
