Laban Guild Creative Dance Leaders Course
Planned for Northern Ireland at Wallace High School, Lisburn, starting in September 2015, a great venue accessible to all parts of Northern Ireland, on the main route from the Republic of Ireland, and within reach of Belfast International Airport.
This is a CPD course for people with some dance experience and also experience of either teaching or work in the community. Not only will you enhance your own dance skills and understanding of movement, but you will be enabled to lead creative dance sessions – to help others to find the dance within themselves! The work is applicable to people working in many areas, including dancers and dance teachers, drama teachers and actors, psychotherapists and people working in social care settings.
