About This Program

This past winter and spring we hosted several teacher trainings at YSNY. The community of teachers that has come together in these trainings have come to mean so much to each other, and to the studio. We have heard your requests to keep the momentum going. This summer we are very excited to be expanding on our Summer School from its previous edition to create an opportunity for our teacher community to not only jump into the deep-end together, but simply to play around and enjoy the whole pool.

YSNY Summer School is all about diving deep, and having fun!

Students of Summer School will work with lead teachers, and join forces as a group. Over the course of the summer, students will take, observe, and assist classes. Students will assist each other. We’ll work on sequencing. We’ll discuss philosophy. We’ll chant together. We’ll laugh together. Programing will account for planned summer vacations (within reason), and with the hope that students who hit the road for a trip will practice-teach their friends on their travels.

The goal of Summer School is for our community of teachers to come together and support one another. We will work together as a group, and provide individualized guidance. We also intend for this program to joyfully support those students who are striving to become subs and teachers at YSNY.
