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.
