“Dance for everyone”
Dance is for everyone! That’s what Holland Dance Festival stands for.
Therefore, we are delighted to once again offer a Teacher Training Course together with our British partner Stopgap Dance Company. A training course for dance teachers who works or want to work with young people and children with disabilities.
In the weekend of April 22 and/or 23 you will deepen your skills of being a dance teacher so that you can work with dancers who have different challenges, a physical disability to intellectual disability. On one or both day(s) you will work with Christian Brinklow and Nadenh Poan of Stopgap, who have extensive experience in teaching inclusive dance workshops:
We will be learning and exploring about the core principles of inclusive dance through Stopgap’s company ethos. We will discuss how to be inclusive but also rigorous, as well as looking at how we can balance the room to allow dance and movement to be accessed by all. We will take a practical approach to demonstrating teaching skills, allowing time for reflections and conversations to delve deeper into our practice.
We will be exploring and working to understand how we can deliver classes that focus on different dance skills that can be accessed by all. We will investigate different methods of teaching various dance skills and have time dedicated to putting all of this into practice through creating our own exercises and sharing them with each other. There will be more time to reflect and discuss our findings with the group, so we can develop our practice together.
This event is SOLD OUT.
