We have been doing these free mindful relaxation for dance teacher, sessions since April and now they are coming to an end. This is because dance teachers are getting ready to get back into their studios and venues to teach once again.
It has been lovely doing these weekly sessions and I hope if you have joined us at any point along the way that you have enjoyed them too.
Good luck to all dance teachers getting back into the swing of classes and coping with all the changes that are required.
Don’t forget there is still time to book a place on the next short online courses beginning in August. Bookings close on Monday 27 July 2020.
A brand new course Positive psychology for dance teachers is available to book now. You can download information sheet about this new course from the Short Online Courses page.
Running at the same time will be the popular Teaching dance for health, short online course for dance teachers. Both courses are available to book now on the Book a course page.
During lockdown and as some begin to ease out of lockdown there is an alternative reflective task for the usual taught class or session for teachers who cannot teach live in the studio or community venue.
