My name is Julia Wight, I am a third-year undergraduate student studying Dance Performance and Teaching. Some things that are important to me include: punctuality, organisation, engagement and being supportive. I am currently working as a teaching assistant at my local dance school where I help teach children aged 6-9 years old in the styles of ballet and tap. Before doing this I also had experience helping teach ballet at a different dance school, however, this age range was slightly younger and I helped with ages 3-7. As part of my course I was very fortunate to take part in placements within both Primary and Secondary schools. From this experience I have realised that I would like for my future career to be working in a Primary school as a teacher.
