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.

Mindfulness in dance teaching

Dancer inclined headIn a busy world it is easy to miss things that are around us or even within us. How much time do we spend noticing what is around us, noticing our breath, noticing how we are teaching?

Creating some space within our teaching to notice things about our teaching. To be mindful of our teaching and the people we teach is what I want to explore very briefly here.  Continue reading
