Continuing Professional Development for Dance Teachers - Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon and Ottawa
June 22 to 25, 2017 is the annual meeting of The Réseau d'enseignement de la Danse (RED) https://red-danse.ca/evenement/rencontre-red-2017/ (french only). This continuous professional development for dance teachers will once again gather great teachers who will share their knowledge with dancers and teachers from around Québec. HDC Vice President Karine Rathle will be giving a workshop on warm ups and cool downs, valuable information on safe teaching practices for dancers of all genres.
Healthy Dancer Canada is pleased to endorse the Level 1 C-I Training Teacher Course & Certification in Toronto, July 29-Aug 3, 2017.
Healthy Dancer Canada is pleased to endorse the upcoming workshop series, Safe Dance Practice, in Toronto this spring.
HDC members will be attending and presenting at the PAMA regional meeting February 11-12 at the Faculty of Music at the University of Toronto. If you are in the Toronto area, get your tickets. It is shaping up to me an amazing event!
Free dancer health workshop for YYC dance teachers and studio owners, October 2 from 2-4:30pm at Crossings Dance Studio. The schedule includes The Importance of Warm Up, Cool Down ad Safe Stretching, presented by Sarah Kenny, and Alignment and the Growing Dancer with Naula McCreanor.
In the next year, we would like to add webinars to the benefits of being a member of HDC. In order to do so, we need your help! We need 5-10 members to participate in a test webinar. This will help us verify the technology available and check for connectivity stability. For the occasion, we will have a free webinar, "Hip Anatomy and Turnout Muscles". This webinar will take place late spring and should last 60-90 minutes. After the webinar, attendees will be required to reply to a short survey about their experience. If you are interested in helping us provide our members with more opportunities (while learning about hip anatomy and turnout muscles), please contact Sébastien Hamel at email@example.com.
