For specialists and novices alike, these friendly, supportive series’ of three online twilight sessions aim to ignite (or re-ignite!) the flame of inspiration and confidence for you, as a creative person and as a teacher or TA.
During this series, you will work with Dance Artist Clare Parker to gain skills in planning and teaching creative dance.
Clare will introduce you to the five basic actions of dance and the four elements of dance (action, space, dynamics, relationships) in a fun, inclusive and creative way. Together we will explore how these can be applied within dance classes, as well as in lessons exploring other topics from across the curriculum; to enable you to apply and adapt your new skills to your classroom, curriculum or projects, especially for kinaesthetic learners.
The sessions will be suitable for all whatever your physical experience, mobility or confidence in leading dance and movement. The workshops will be fun, open and allow time to discuss and ask questions.
With a maximum of 15 participants from both primary and secondary schools, sessions blend individual exercises with discussion and time to explore how to apply your learning to the needs and abilities of your students.
Each session will:
Explore a new technique
Build upon the previous week’s technique
ask questions and explore how you can embed your new skills into your working day
offer a piece of practical homework, for you – or even better, for your class
