We held our first face to face outreach teacher training session of 2022 last week and we were joined by the wonderful Carly Allen from Vital Signz Dance Company.
The workshop focused on working with street and urban dance styles within school settings. The aim was to give those teachers who are more contemporary, or ballet based, some extra confidence in working with this genre and for those who are already competent, the training day gave them some really useful tools and tips for working with different age groups/ mixed ability levels in one group/how to bring creativity and themes into the genre and it was a really brilliant session!
It was also a fantastic opportunity to meet the rest of the Outreach team at the start of the year and we can’t wait to see how the training helps those who are taking part in the Surrey Schools Slam in March 2022.
Thank you so much to Carly for bringing such an enthusiastic session to our team.
