The Royal Academy of Dance offers a wide range of courses, classes and workshops for young people
The Royal Academy of Dance’s ‘Dance for Lifelong Wellbeing’ project has secured funding of £49,979.00 from the Skills Funding Agency as part of the new Community Learning Innovation Fund, to work with adult learners in the community and improve their health and wellbeing through dance.
The four-stage project will improve access to high quality dance teaching for older learners with the aim of enhancing health and general wellbeing and promoting social inclusion. The project will include initial teacher training, outreach work, project evaluation and dissemination over a period of ten months and will provide six specialist dance teachers able to lead the development of adult dance practice in the London area. Dr Anne Hogan, Director of Education at the Royal Academy of Dance, is confident that “The project will increase opportunities for adults in later life to participate in life-enhancing movement and exercise.”
If you are interested in being involved, it is not too late to apply.
Dance teachers interested in developing their practice working with adults might also be interested in the CPD one day Dance for Longevity workshop.
