The MEDANZ committee are actively working on ideas to increase our membership numbers and promote the aims of our Association to a wider audience. One of the ways we hope to achieve this goal is to offer our members and the wider community a comprehensive list of MED teachers throughout New Zealand. If you are a teacher of MED who is not currently on the MEDANZ Teachers' Network we invite you to join us, details can be found here: Teachers' Network
How can you benefit by listing on the MEDANZ Teachers' Network?
Now that the telephone directories are being phased out, it is harder to be recognized as a local dance school. When you are listed on the national MEDANZ Teachers' Network, which is displayed geographically North to South, you immediately become visible to potential students looking for a belly dance teacher in your area.
The Teachers' Network listings are free advertising for you and your school.
The MEDANZ Teachers' Network is a frequently used reference by overseas students and other MEDANZ members who are on the move to new areas and looking for a dance class.
All MEDANZ teachers are eligible to teach and perform at the annual MEDANZ Festival.
MEDANZ will provide your teaching details to the membership via the newsletter and our web site, so that travelling members can take classes with you, make contact, and refer students to you who are in your area.
**NEW**Only MEDANZ Network teachers are eligible for grants (covering travel of NZ teachers) and underwriting for visiting teachers from overseas.
**NEW**Only MEDANZ Network teachers are eligible to host mini-festivals to promote your dance school in your area. A MEDANZ Mini-Festival encourages student education, socialisation and performance opportunities, and provides Teacher Training during the mini-festival to help you make the most of your dance school.
**NEW**Only MEDANZ Network teachers are eligible to be chosen to teach at mini-festivals around NZ organized by the Association.
**NEW**MEDANZ Network teachers will be eligible to put their students forward for a MEDANZ Student Scholarship worth $500.00 to be awarded at Festival each year. The Teacher of the scholarship recipient is guaranteed the opportunity to host a MEDANZ mini-festival during the following year (April to March)
As you can see, in addition to the benefits of being part of a wider community of dancers and teachers, the MEDANZ Committee are actively working to support and promote our teachers and their dance schools in New Zealand. If you have any additional questions, suggestions or comments we would love to hear from you, simply email email@example.com.
We are looking forward to promoting you and your dance classes via the MEDANZ Teachers' Network.
