Professional Training for Dance Teachers
Professional development for dance educators
Easy to teach fundamentals to help dancers of all ages excel
Excellent addition to any syllabus including ISTD and RAD
The Aaron Dwyer Method dance education training sessions are not just about style or choreography. They provide professional development opportunities for anyone teaching in a dance school - and because they are about the fundamentals of what every dancer needs - they are an excellent addition to any RAD or ISTD dance syllabus.
Every dancer - whether training in contemporary, jazz, ballet or commercial - needs to be able do one, or more of the following.
Good technique will improve execution of the move but, more importantly, when performed correctly the likelihood of an injury to the dance artist is greatly reduced, which can help increase career longevity.
The Teaching Pirouettes and Turns Dance Course
In over 15 years of teaching a range of styles in the dance industry, Aaron has been able to develop technique fundamentals, which are understandable, easy to explain, easy to correct, and easy for dancers to grasp. The Aaron Dwyer Method courses and intensives are an opportunity to learn these fundamentals from Aaron himself.
LEARN THE METHOD & HELP YOUR DANCERS EXCEL
The first of the Aaron Dwyer Method dance teaching courses will focus on pirouettes and turns and will include the following:
-The fundamentals of pirouettes and turns: Teaching these 5 tips can help dancers excel within as little as 30 minutes with past examples seeing an extra 1 or 2 pirouettes added comfortably.
-Essential tips on beating the mental block: The techniques involved in pirouettes and turns are ones that dancers can struggle with mentally as well as physically. This dance intensive recognises that the mental block can sometimes be the main issue and Aaron will share his method for addressing this.
-Takeaway exercises to implement in the dance studio: Follow the practices that Aaron has developed over years of teaching to help dancers of all ages and levels work on the 5 fundamental steps to master pirouettes and turns.
There are no entry requirements to undertake an Aaron Dwyer Method course - other than that the attendee has either dance performance or teaching experience in any modern, classical or contemporary dance style. The session content is equally beneficial to a qualified teacher, a student of a higher education dance qualification or someone with a dance background that has no previous teaching qualifications.
