The course covers well-defined methods and techniques for teaching, but there is not a stagnant set of rules. It is an ever-changing approach to designing creative movement practices that allow anybody and everybody’s movement to emerge, thereby facilitating individual and group expression. Participants in the DanceAbility Teacher Certification course will build on their own experiences to develop appropriate materials for the continued development of the work in their own communities. TRAINING INCLUDES: * Foundations for improvising and performance-making in diverse groups of people with and without disabilities * Integrating Contact Improvisation with mixed abilities * Learning how to plan and teach classes for all levels, and all abilities * Learning to lead performance-making projects, including outdoor public space and street performances * Learning how to organise and administrate development and ideas for international networking Teaching language is English.
