A brand new course Positive psychology for dance teachers is available to book now. You can download information sheet about this new course from the Short Online Courses page.
Running at the same time will be the popular Teaching dance for health, short online course for dance teachers. Both courses are available to book now on the Book a course page.
During lockdown and as some begin to ease out of lockdown there is an alternative reflective task for the usual taught class or session for teachers who cannot teach live in the studio or community venue.
Many of you will have already downloaded my booklet on Preparation for Performance but if you haven’t then it is below if you want to download it.
I wrote it for Highland Dancers but the exercises. breathing and all are suitable for all dancers (and teachers). In sport they pay attention to preparing for performance instead of leaving it to chance. We can prepare for performance in dance too whether that be for examination, competitions and to make sure we can do our best in class.
