When COVID-19 shuttered in-person dance classes for Show How Studio, we moved to an online format. Dance classes were taught from our home studio with students safely and interactively participating from home.

About Steve

Steve Kovacs

Steve Kovacs

Instructional Designer

An experienced classroom teacher, private lesson coach, workshop provider, digital marketer, author and content creator, Steve has a well-rounded skillset that makes him a valuable contributor to projects that require instructional design, development and blended learning implementation.

His study of instructional design at University of Wisconsin-Stout has reinforced the connection between his experiences in storytelling and crafting learning experiences. He uses his understanding of storytelling to design the instructional message. He applies his experience as an acting coach, focusing on learner behaviors the way an actor focuses on character behaviors. And, just as theater should be a transformational experience for the audience, landing the instructional message changes learners forever by closing performance gaps.
