Dance4Kids Pop Up Seminars, A Q&A With Jann Davis

Join Our Newsletter


WHAT IS THE HIRE ME PROJECT®?

Let's face it, we all love to dance and we all love to teach. Until 1990, I was a very well-known dance educator in the Greater New England area, owning a studio with multiple locations, rooms, and faculty. I pioneered many programs you use in your studios, "bring a friend week", the adjudicated score system, to name just a few. After an accident and a spinal cord injury I transitioned into public education, became certified on the professional level through the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary education in four fields, and worked for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation under a grant funded by the Intel Corporation.


The Hire Me Project® is inspired by all of my experiences. How is faculty hired by dance conventions then and now? With social media it is easier, but I believe dance is a hands on experience, and as a public educator I learned the value of being part of an educational community. Instead of asking for others who want to teach and hopefully adjudicate, I decided why not create a seminar where teachers co-create with me and others.


HOW TO I HOST A POP-UP SEMINAR?

My vision for a pop-up is a three-hour session, I introduce my products and a teacher or teachers introduce theirs, held at a local studio or cheer gym. The host teacher invites like-minded educators to attend. I introduce Montage Choreography®, ownership of SKILLS Sport Dance Games® and other products I have and we all have a "dance party" learning from each other and sharing our knowledges. To host a seminar email or text me.


WHAT DOES IT COST?

I am very well acquainted with traveling throughout New England via Amtrak, the Commuter and MBTA railways for another project I have, cheap places to eat for seniors with high quality food, so I would use my experiences to get to you in New England. The fee is $59 for three-hours. Studio rental fee would be paid and a stipend to the faculty member who works with me. It is a great way to network, and meet others. the fee would be higher outside of New England, but I plan on going to other states, eventually all 50. There could be LIVE sessions based upon approval of the studio where the seminars are held, fee is still $59.00


WHERE ARE YOU HOLDING THEM?

I would prefer dance studios that could accommodate up to 20 attendees. I am looking to expand in MA, RI, and ME right now, I have plans to expand into other states. The purpose is to find teachers who could teach at the Dance4Kids Conference®.


WHAT DATES ARE AVAILABLE?

I am planning on the second and fourth Friday of every month January to April.

January 20th and 27th, February 10th and 24th, March 10th and 24th, and April14th and 28th. Registration is 21 days prior to a seminar, fee is made on our Venmo account.


HOW CAN I PRESENT MY DANCE EDUCATION CONCEPT?

Text me (781-742-3173) or email info@janndaviscompany.com,

Please visit the D4KI page for topics we are looking for.


WHY SHOULD I ATTEND OR INVITE OTHERS?

Let's face it there are a limited number of individuals who dominate many conventions and adjudicate competitions. I am looking for new faces who want to teach and learn via a collaborative model. Dance4Kids® is designed for the bread and butter of our businesses, the PK to 3rd grade once a week student. We need to grow our businesses and face to face is the best way to collaborate. I attend zoom meetings, as a dance teacher I feel something is missing.


IS THERE A LIMIT TO THE NUMBER OF ATTENDEES PER POP-UP?

I think 15-20 dance educators is a great number. If you and other faculty members as listed on your studio website, wish to attend, contact me and we can discuss a payment plan that works for you or a private workshop for your faculty and your students.


CAN VENDORS ATTEND AND OR SPONSOR A POP-UP?

I have been contacted by local dancewear vendors and other suppliers. again text or email and give me a proposal.
