Sackey believes dancing improves the confidence of his pupils and makes them feel free to open up to him.

The unique thing I’m using now is to dance with my kids to improve their confidence during class hours,” he told the BBC.

As I implemented the dance, they feel free to ask me whatever is bothering them. Whenever I’m done with a lesson and I ask a question, they are able to tell me because they don’t see me as a caricature or something like that.

He added that most of his pupils are very talented when it comes to drama and singing and his relationship with them allows them to express themselves.

We have a lot of talents, those who can sing and those who can do the drama. So I want to generalize it in a way that everyone will have his or field,” Sackey added.
