Tuesday 26 July 2016
This one-day course aims to develop the knowledge and skills of the dance practitioner in relation to safe and healthy dance activity using the most up to date research in dance science. Whether working within youth dance, with ageing dancers or dancers with disabilities, the underlying principles for safe dance remain the same and need to be practiced when working with any moving body.
The course will focus on the key aspects for safe and effective warm up and cool down, suitable sequencing of a dance class, basic anatomical considerations, and what advice should or shouldn’t be given by the dance leader to the participants in their session.
The course will provide an introduction to a number of key areas that consolidate what makes a dance class safe so that the practitioner can feel more confident about their own understanding, and delivery in community dance, with a focus on their particular area of practice.
The course is also a great introduction to the new Safe in Dance International (SiDI) Healthy Dance Practice Certification.
