Social and leisure dance

There are still a few hours left (UK time) to book your place on the Teaching Social and Leisure Dance, short online CPD course for dance teachers.

This is an ideal course if you are already teaching a form of social and leisure dance and if you currently teach structured dance classes for those looking to have a career in dance then this course will be useful to you too.

Teaching social and leisure dance is different to teaching strict technique. Social and leisure dance encourages people to learn in a fun and relaxed environment and in a safe manner. And the emphasis is on the social benefits of this type of dance class or event.

A real mix of dance teachers have taken this course previously. Ballroom, Line dance and   ballet and other teachers have already enjoyed this course. It offers an opportunity to explore teaching methods and approaches in social and leisure dance as well as a variety of other, useful aspects of teaching social and leisure dance classes.

Line dance teachers have particularly enjoyed exploring some of the areas of teaching that are new to them or just a new way of thinking about some aspect of teaching Line dancing. This previous article about Line dancing and teacher CPD might interest you.

The personal weekly tutorial emails tailor the course to suit your own dance teaching practice and teachers find this a particularly helpful aspect of these courses.

Find out more about this course and later courses. And you can book here.

November courses – have you booked your place?

LogoThis is a quick reminder to say that bookings for the November courses close tomorrow, 31 October. If you are thinking of joining us for Mindfulness in Dance Teaching or the Proprioception course then you still have time to book your place online by the end of 31 October 2017 (UK time).

These short online CPD courses only take 10 hours of your time over the three weeks of the course. Completition certifcates include the number of hours and date of competition (the last date of  your course). Dance teachers from around the world have successfully completed a variety of short online CPD courses with me since I introduced them in April 2015. During this short period of time course participants have included dance teachers just starting out, through to very highly experienced teachers who have been working in the dance industry for decades. As the weekly email tutorials enable the course to be personalised and tailored to suit your specific dance teaching practice, they are meaningful for your practice and not just in a general way.

If you are new to these courses why not take one in November and see how you can enhance your knowledge, skills and understanding in topics that you might be revising or are new to, and want to explore and find out how to incorporate them into your teaching.

If you have already taken one or more of my short online CPD courses then are you ready to take another course?

Thank you for considering these courses. If you are taking one or both of the November courses then I look forward to working with you then.

New dates – courses available to book NOW

I am running two short online CPD courses for dance teachers starting on Friday 10 November 2017. Details and booking at Book a Course.

Teachers often ask if they can take two courses at the same time and my answer is yes, of course, as long as you have sufficient time available to fit in both courses and also teach the class for each course in week three. The class for each course needs to focus on what we explore about the topic on that course so if you do take two courses then you will need to teach two classes in the final week of the course. As long as you can do this then you are welcome to take two courses together. Teachers who have taken two courses at the same time have reported many benefits as topics always have connections with each other. After all they are all about enhancing our knowledge, skills and understanding of how we teach.

You can find out more about the courses available to book and all the courses that we offer at Short Online Courses. And you can book current courses at Book a Course.

Why don’t you join me on a short online CPD course for dance teachers in November?
