Training for Dance Teachers

The course Training for Dance Teachers is directed toward professionally employed dance teachers who are working within the Community Dance and/or Non-professional sector and who wish to expand or add to the already garnered knowledge. The training focuses on the expansion of knowledge of practical examples, going more into depth on anatomical-physiological contexts, and the ability to apply the newly gained theoretical knowledge in a targeted manner. 

The course structure is divided into four modules. As the modules’ contents are independent from each other and the modules are self-contained, they can be attended independently from one another. The entire training series 1 to 4 will be repeated and restarted every year in November (one-year rhythm).

Participation is limited to between six and 12 persons for each module.

A dance teacher educational background is a prerequisite for attending these training courses. Therefore, all applicants must have either completed a study in dance teacher (BA or MA Diploma, Dipl.-Dance Teacher) or have been continuously active as dance teachers over a period of at least five years. This professional course will be held in German, therefore advanced German proficiency is strongly recommended for international course participants.

A participation fee in the amount of 150.00 Euro will be charged for each module.

After the completion of one or more modules, you will receive a confirmation of participation and a personal certificate.
