South East Dance Teacher Training
We are really excited to be piloting our first teacher training in dance for primary schools this June. The free CPD (continuing professional development) training for Key Stage Two teachers will take place via Zoom, led by dance artist and choreographer Anne Colvin. This will be an opportunity for teachers to expand their creativity in the classroom and not only understand how to teach dance further, but also how to embed it into the curriculum and into children’s everyday lives. This new project is being managed by South East Dance placement student Celine Bakir (University of Surrey) as part of her Gold Arts Award qualification.
This pilot is part of a wider dance schools programme led by South East Dance and Marina Studios, called Aldridge Dance. The programme is supported by Aldridge Foundation, which aims to better connect the education, dance, health and sports sectors in Brighton & Hove. If you are interested in talking to us about bringing dance into your school – via the primary school teacher training, bringing a dance professional into your primary school to support you with activities like Let’s Dance, or to deliver regular classes - contact Rose Kigwana, our Senior Producer, Participation at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
