Dance Class Etiquette, The 10 Golden Rules Dec 16, 2005

排舞課程禮儀:十大黃金原則

By simply following these ‘ten golden rules’, everyone will have a great time and get the maximum benefit from their dance class or workshop.

遵守這十大原則,每個人將會在課程中擁有美好時光,得到最大的學習效果

1. Show respect for your teacher.  尊敬指導老師

In Eastern disciplines such as martial arts and yoga, the teacher is revered, worshipped and given great loyalty and respect.  Teachers have worked long and hard and made many sacrifices  to master their arts.  Many have dedicated their lives to this dance form.  Remember, choreographies are the property of the teacher.  Generally, a teacher gives permission to perform her choreographies when she teaches them.  However, this does not give you the right to teach the choreography to other students or even your own troupe members.  Ask the teacher for her policy regarding this very important legal issue.

這個文章指的老師是編舞者,它強調的是舞序是編舞者辛苦的智慧財產,他們願意奉獻出來教大家,大家應該帶著尊敬的心情,同樣的我們這些教排舞的老師為了教大家花了很多時間找資料,練舞步,想教學方法,就是要把我們教會,所以我們也要尊敬教我們排舞的老師

2. Be on time.  要準時

There is no excuse for being late.  It disrupts other students and the teacher when someone arrives ten minutes late. You forego essential warm up stretches.   How would you feel if your teacher arrived ten or fifteen minutes late?   Find out  what time the studio doors open and try to be in class at least 5 minutes early.  This is will give you time to change into your tights, use the bathroom and get a drink of water!   If you are late, and we are only human so occasionally happen, quietly enter the room and position yourself on the floor.

沒有任何遲到的藉口,你的遲到會中斷大家的學習,如果非不得已遲到了,切記安靜進場,趕快找個不影響大家位子跟上練習

3. Be considerate of students around you.  多體諒同學

People learn at different rates and in different ways.  Be patient with others who may not grasp the movement as quickly as you do.  Spend the extra time the teacher is taking with the ‘slower’ student, to refine the movement you have just learned.  The general rule for most workshops is you arrive and  position yourself on the dance floor.  Do not force someone out of their spot because you want to be in the front row and arrived too late.  Also keep in mind that many teachers will rotate rows so that everyone has a fair opportunity to be up front.  Don’t be upset if you arrived early and all of sudden you find yourself in the back row.

每個人接受排舞的資質不同,很多人可能沒有你學得快,老師會花多一點時間教這些同學,要有耐心等候其他同學的學習,還有不要跟同學搶著挑前面接近老師的位子,在課堂上老師都會注意每個人的學習程度

4. Wear suitable attire.   穿載要適合

Avoid wearing too much jewelry, coins or costume accessories to dance class.   Beginning students tend to do this a lot, because it is a fun opportunity to dress in costume.   Save your sequins and bells for recitals and performances.  When trying to learn new movements, too many bangles will distract you and nearby students.   You will not be able to stretch properly.  Also, floor stretches can be very damaging to expensive costume material.  Dance tights and a hip scarf are adequate and more suitable for class.   Leggings, midriff tops and long, full skirts are also appropriate.   It is important to be comfortable and to be able to achieve a broad range of motion.

避免帶太多珠寶,零錢或配件在身上,重要的是要舒適,要能夠讓自己做大幅度的活動為穿載原則

5. Keep talking and giggling to a minimum. 講話及儍笑要減至最低

This is probably my most flexible rule.  Part of the fun of dance class is the giggling and laughing  which often occurs.  I tend to encourage laughter during my weekly classes.   After all, feeling good  is one of the benefits of the dance.  However, when I attend a workshop, I try to keep talking and giggling in check.   Avoid  talking to other students during class.  Keep your attention focused on the workshop teacher. If you are attending a workshop from out of town and your hometown teacher is also present, do not ask her for help during the workshop. If you have a question, ask the workshop teacher!   Your hometown teacher can help you later, after the workshop.

當然排舞帶給人家的就是歡樂,怎麼可能不笑,不過在課堂上,為了專注老師的講解,儘可能避免與人談話,不要嘻笑,如果有問題一定要找老師

6. Avoid being a know it all.   不要裝著很懂的樣子

Yes, you have had another teacher somewhere who called that movement “The Washing Machine.”  Your old teacher was the authority on the subject and now you are.  Keep in mind, this dance has been passed on from one dancer to the next since the beginning of time.  The movements do not have standardized names.   Teachers generally call a movement what their teacher called it.  There is no right or wrong name!  Do not openly challenge a teacher’s expertise!  Resist the urge to add your 2 cents every time you think you know the answer.  The teacher’s job is to teach -- it’s not your job!  Also, you may think your way of explaining a move works, when in reality you may be explaining a different move or worse yet teaching bad habits.  If you feel so compelled to help someone, do it some other time -- not during class or workshop time.

也許你在別的老師那兒學到的動作術語跟這次老師講的不一樣,很多動作及術語沒有對跟錯,也沒有一定標準統一的說法,不要去質疑老師的專業,還有千萬不要在課堂上教別人,等下課後大家可以討論,但在課堂上請由老師統一指導

7.Take notes when sitting out of active participation. 當休息不跳時記筆記

If for some reason, you absolutely can not continue the class -- you are too tired, too hungry, cramps, etc. -- by no means, leave.  When students walk out the door, it shows a lack of respect for the teacher.  Other students wonder where the dancer has gone? Sit in the corner and take notes.  Do not converse with other students or start shopping.   Do your shopping at the appropriate time.  If you are able to return to class, do so quietly and take a spot in the back of the room.

如果因為某些原因你不能繼續跳,請安靜坐在角落記錄重點,不要離開影響其他學員的心情,如果有事要離開一下會再回來,請安靜點,回來時在後面找個角落恢復練習,儘可能不要影響其他人

8.Let the teacher teach. 專心聽老師講解

If you are a teacher, under no circumstances should you voice an opinion in another teacher’s class, unless you are asked to do so.  I know it is hard to resist helping the floundering girl next to you, but it is not your  place.  Let the teacher do the teaching.  Button your lip.  If the teacher asks for your opinion or expertise, concisely  give it and then give your complete attention back to her!  Sometimes you may feel you could explain the movement better than the teacher or in a different way.  Go back and review Rule #6 above!

如果你也是個老師,決不要在別人的課堂上提出意見,除非人家有徵詢你的意見;如果看到旁邊的人不會跳,讓老師教他;嘴巴閉上,除非老師要求你提供意見,記得回覆答案後要再繼續專心聽老師講解,也許你不服氣覺得你比老師懂,會教得比老師好,那請再回去看第六條黃金原則

9.Keep an open mind and please do not complain.  保持虛心愉悅不要抱怨

Be open to new ideas and possibilities.  Try to focus on how your new teacher can expand your dance repertoire.  Do not compare her to other teachers.   Do not complain about a movement  being too difficult.  Instead, ask thoughtful questions so that you can understand the difficult movement.   Don’t be afraid to ask questions.  Chances are, other students are wondering the same thing.  

試著接受新的觀念,讓老師引導你擴展舞蹈的技巧,不要把老師跟別人比較,要相信老師,不要抱怨老師教的太難,試著去問問題解開困難的舞步,不要害怕問問題,也許別的同學也有同樣的問題,虛心向老師請教就對了

10.Watch the teacher’s performance or demonstration.  注意老師的示範

If the teacher is kind enough to perform or demonstrate for the class, watch in silence.  Once, I observed a teacher performing a veil dance so beautifully I could have cried, except I wanted to scream at the miserable girls behind me.  While she graciously performed, they chattered incessantly.    This behavior followed arriving late to class, complaining about difficult movements,  and quitting  early because of fatigue.  They would have been better off staying at home.  The rest of us could have enjoyed the workshop more.

老師很認真在教課時,專心安靜看著老師的示範

當老師跳得很好時,會尖叫的人;當老師很努力在教時,在旁邊喋喋不休的人;當你遲到,嫌動作太難的人;喊太累提早休息的人,我建議這些人最好都在家休息不要來,這樣我們這些留下來練習的人才能好好享受這個課程

By giving teacher’s the respect they deserve - you get something back - your money’s worth

給老師他們應該得到的尊重,你就可以得到更多,這樣你花的學費才值得

P.S.我的老師如果看到這篇文章一定會拿它來掐我,因為我沒有一項黃金原則有做到,對不起老師,給我時間,如果可以的話我儘量改,大家一起來「尊師運動」
