This new choreography course is designed to be invigorating, informative and valuable. It is aimed for all teachers of GCSE Dance who are looking to enhance and extend further their choreography pedagogical skills and knowledge to establish the maximum opportunities for their students.
The course will also give focus to choreography assessment, examine recent feedback on GCSE choreographic compositions, assessment criteria and consider how best to enthuse and motivate students to develop a love for choreography.
The course will include practical sessions as well as non-practical sessions, and will be held in a Dance Studio in Central London. Teachers are advised to wear clothes they feel comfortable to move in.
