Dance for Parkinson's - Summer School Assistants
Date posted: 25 April 2017
The Dance for Parkinson’s Partnership at People Dancing is delighted to announce that this summer there will be another opportunity for dance practitioners to attend an Introduction to Dance for Parkinson’s course which will take place on 25 and 26 July 2017 at De Montfort University, in Leicester, as part of the People Dancing Summer School.

This year the Dance for Parkinson’s Partnership has created a new opportunity for two dance artists/practitioners to attend the course to ‘shadow the work’ and assist the course leaders for this two day programme.

This professional development opportunity is open to existing artists/teachers who would like to develop their skills in a training context; working alongside David Leventhal and Danielle Teale will provide an opportunity to learn about skilful leadership in a dance for Parkinson’s context.

The two Learning or Teaching Assistants will attend the full course and be guided by the course leaders as to how they might best assist. There will be opportunities to discuss teaching methods and approaches to develop skills and understanding of delivery in this context.

Since the training workshop's success depends on close collaboration among a small team of facilitators, we are seeking two Learning or Teaching Assistants who will work well within a small team.

Overnight accommodation and travel expenses will be paid.

If you are interested in this opportunity please send a cv and supporting statement of no more than 500 words to Tell us about your skills and experience in dance and Parkinson’s and how your practice will be improved by participation in this activity.   

The deadline for applications is 9am on 26 May 2017.
