A Day for Dance Teachers

A Day for Dance Teachers
A one day course for dance teachers, examiners, student teachers and wannabe dance teachers who want to explore safe dance practice basics.

Teachers often tell me that they do not believe that safe dance practice courses are for them. This arises from the belief that they are usually aimed at teachers teaching vocational students - those who are seriously looking at a career in dance. Teachers who are teaching 'once a week' kids and adults who are dancing because they enjoy it therefore might not attend safe dance practice courses. To encourage teachers in dance genres to realise that safe dance practice applies to all of us involved in the teaching and learning of dance, these courses have been devised with the needs of the non-vocational teachers in mind. In other words they will look at the sorts of safe dance practice issues that non-vocational dance teachers need to address.
