What other occupations are you involved in?
Describe a teaching or learning experience that sticks out in your mind.
The first time I worked as a guest trainer with the Danish Association and Danish National Demo Team. It was humbling and an honor to be asked to coach a European association. The biggest learning curve was the importance of, and how to move past, the dogmatic constraints of national techniques and pedagogy. The importance of speaking simply, clearly, accurately and from ones heart cannot be overstated. This, while keeping an open mind to other artistic interpretations, is what led to success with this venture and others internationally.
