On Tuesday 8th October 2019, Dance4 is hosting an inspiring afternoon workshop exploring creative dance activities with regional dance education specialist, Claire Pring.

As part of our continuing commitment to support the teaching workforce, we are inviting individuals who teach within primary education settings an opportunity to attend this motivating workshop at Dance4’s international Centre for Choreography. The session will explore a range of creative dance ideas for teachers to take back into their own settings and inspire the young people they work with.

Here’s what Claire has to say about herself and the session she will lead:

“I started teaching in the last millennium (let’s not be too specific about when) after completing a B.Ed. (Hons) in primary dance. Since then I have been a primary school teacher, a dance animateur, a freelance dance artist, a high school dance teacher, an AST and now I’m a Lead Practitioner for Dance in Derbyshire & a Dance Ambassador for the Royal Opera House. So I’ve been in and out of schools in a variety of roles and seen dance ebb and flow in a number of different directions. But through all of this I think my approach has stayed pretty steady – and what I value and try to achieve has too.

The things that are important to me include making the lessons creative from the start, I want them to have ownership of the work and the ideas… and I want them to finish the lesson red in the face & slightly sweaty.

Our session together will focus on planning thematic lessons using stories as a stimulus, so be ready to move, create and there will probably be a few giggles along the way too!”

Advanced booking is essential. Tickets are £5 and will include refreshments.
