Tanishi Hiroshi's Danceable LIFE Vol.4

Things to notice by "teaching"
Tanishi Hiroki (dancer / choreographer)

I have been teaching jazz dance at university for about 3 years. The trigger was that I appeared in the role of Carabos on guest appearance in the "Sleeping Beauty" of the Yanomoko Ballet Company. I learned very much that I did not think of being able to call a full-fledged work like classical ballet stage, directing and choreographing to former principal of Russian Kirov Ballet Company.
From that point of view, I was asked to say "Will you take charge of a jazz dance lesson at Shizuku Gakuen Music College?"
Actually, I was taught for a short period at the cultural center in my 20's, but the hurdle is high when I become a university class. There was also a thought that "I do not have much time" because I want to dance and still dance. However, we rarely get such opportunities. Since dancing can not be kept as entities like paintings and music, I thought that "I am also good" if I can tell young people what I've worn so far, I accepted it.
The problem is "what to tell". As I am not an elite as a dancer, it is not a technical example. I think that it would be nice to try a challenge from why you call me out, but it is courage to teach the students.
I talked to an acquaintance who is teaching at university, "I do not have to tell,I hope to show the figure that minute is dancing. " What is sought is to show the attitude that you have faced with dancing, how to capture it and leave it to the students to learn it. I was pushed back by that word and began to take charge of classes.

Three years have passed since I started thinking that if I saw the way I danced and steal it, I would like to express my self expression through dancing, how to put out my presence, and so on. I do not have a teacher 's experience, and holding a class while holding a stage is a difficult thing, so I thought that I would like to quit soon.

Apparently, I do not dislike teaching.

I do not think it is being taught well, and I feel that it is troublesome. But I am happy to see the students growing step by step, I feel love. I was surprised even by myself.
I will be presenting my first graduate this spring. I am really looking forward to seeing how they will work hard in the outside world.

I do not know what will happen in the world as I was forced to play the stage by injury. No matter how you stand, do not do it when you're out of time. I think everything positively and I will try as much as I can.
