Happy New Year. There is always a lot to do at the beginning of the year and here at CPD for Dance Teachers it is a busy time. In response to requests for course lists to cover several months at a time the new course list covers from January to May. So you can book now for any of the courses on the list.
New courses coming later this year
There is preparation work being done on some new courses to add to the current courses. There will be news of them in the coming months. Watch out for announcements later in the year.
Our Short Online CPD Courses for Dance Teachers are very reasonably priced especially as they include at least three personal email tutorials/feedback during each course. This personal feedback personalises the course to your teaching practice in a way that teachers report to be very beneficial.
We don’t often increase our course fees but it is necessary to do so this year. Current fees per course are £55 and they will increase for courses booked after the end of February 2020 to £59. In order to give you an opportunity to still pay the current fee of £55 you can book any of the current courses listed to May 2020 at £55 as long as you pay for them before the end of February 2020. Course bookings paid for after the end of February 2020 will be £59 per course. The courses will still offer fantastic value and a convenient way to get some CPD under your belt.
You can find information sheets to download about all of our online courses on the Short Online Courses page.
We look forward to having an opportunity to work with you this year.
A big congratulations to everyone who completed the short online CPD courses that started in September.
It is great to work with teachers who are so interested in exploring the course topics. I am especially delighted with the response to the course Dance Teaching Ethics: an introduction. During the course a lot of ethical issues arose and were explored with each teacher relevant to his or her own dance teaching practice in UK and overseas. This personal aspect of these courses is a key benefit as it enables course content and materials to be meaningful for individual dance teachers and their dance teaching practice and not just in general. I look forward to working with another group of dance teachers on this course in the future.
The next courses will begin in early 2016 and dates will be published on this site very soon. Please check back for details or use the free sign up (on the right) to get email notifications of new posts published or if preferred join the RSS feed.
Please note that there will be a closing date for booking future courses. This will be published along with course information. Please make sure to check the closing date for booking courses in the future, to avoid disappointment.
This new infosheet produced from a collaboration between The Healthier Dancer programme and Foundations for Excellence is a welcome addition to the existing information that is available about joint hypermobility. On one hand, joint hypermobility is loved because it allows greater than the average range of movement in the joint. On the other hand, hypermobility in dancers needs careful attention and support when training to realise potential and also avoid injury.
