We have a Special Offer for the November courses. You can get £10 off the cost of a second course by booking two courses together. These courses must both be for the same person and both start on Friday 6 November 2020. This is a great deal for teachers wanting to take two courses together. A number of teachers have taken two courses at the same time in the past reporting that they found this very doable.

There are three courses available to book for November. The closing date for booking is Sunday 1 November 2020. All times are UK times.

Courses available to book are:

Tension & Rigidity in Dance

Bookings before end of February


Don’t forget that you can take advantage of the cheaper price of courses by booking before the end of February. You can book any of the courses listed until May 2020. You can find all the details in this earlier post.

Courses for March are looking good and as this post is just after the closing date we are extending the closing date to 25 February so you can still book until then (UK time). It is always enjoyable to work with teachers again and it is good to see current bookings are a mix of teachers new to these courses as well as teachers who have taken one or more courses previously. As always it will be great to have this opportunity to work with you.

NB: although the Book a Course page gives the closing date as 21 February you can continue to book until the end of 25 February (UK time).
