..but we all do it.  There's nothing wrong with it either, as long as you are honest about your own training/experience.   Of course if you charge for it then a different set of rules/standards/ethics kicks in...

yes if you are charging then you better be right with your information Cheesy

Hmm.  Clearly, not every dance pro subscribes to this notion.  Shocked  Grin

but there ALOT of teachers who know far less than the AMs they are teaching.  Thus, one had better use a stricter criterion for learning than the price of the lesson Smiley

Exactly, and I have the horror stories to prove it.  Just because someone can hang out a shingle doesn't make them a good dance teacher.

the hard part is when someone you taught comes back and beats you at your own game Shocked Undecided
