Teacher Training Programme

Dance, Move, Connect

Would you like to share the Dance Connection system professionally?

The teacher training programme is over 12-weekend sessions designed for you to learn the theoretical background of this system, its methodology, music, and practice. The training is normally preceded by a one-year Personal Dance Journey, depending on your experience and background. If you have previous experience of embodiment and dance practice, you may be able to access a fast track programme, attending part of the year's development to access the teacher training.

You will complete in-house, teaching practice and receive structured guidance, support, and methodological parameters to be an adaptable Dance Connection Facilitator 

Educational Methodology:

Education for wellbeing 

Education for the language of connection

Education for musicality

Education for expression

Learning is experiential, somatic, affective and cognitive - which brings  self-awareness of the way our body moves  and expresses; and awareness of  how this connects, communicates and contributes to our own and others wellbeing. 

Teacher Training Programme

Each weekend will include a mixture of applied theory, dance, underpinning theory, discussion and sharing as fitted to the aim of the weekend. Later weekends will include teaching practice.
