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?

Lectures from the champion dancer or the champion dancer’s coach?

LeapingIt interests me that in dance it is often the case that a current champion or successful competitor is booked to give a lecture to dance teachers or their students. And why is this? Do current champions know how to help others become champions or is it more likely that they just know their own experience of how they became champions? Continue reading
