Press Release - Launch of new publication

Dance Teaching Essentials

Dance Teaching Essentials is to be launched at The Place, London on 12 September 2002, in the presence of Tessa Blackstone, Minister of State for the Arts.

Dance Teaching Essentials is a major step forward in promoting high quality dance teaching and is the first publication of its kind. It celebrates the diversity of dance experiences available to young people and establishes connections between the teaching that takes place in schools, the graded examinations provided by studio teachers, vocational dance training and the projects and performances on offer in community settings. Dance Teaching Essentials marks the fact that a common understanding about good practice is emerging across all kinds of dance teaching.

Compiled and written by a group encompassing expertise in a wide range of dance teaching contexts, Dance Teaching Essentials demonstrates the benefits of working in partnership (see the list below).

Dance Teaching Essentials brings together essential information that all dance teachers need whatever style of dance they teach. It includes sections on how young people grow and learn, safe practice, the legal framework that dance teachers work within, planning and teaching strategies, qualifications and professional development. There are lots examples of dance teaching in practice including in schools and studios, international choreographic projects, and dance as an aid to learning. The resources section includes summaries of physical, psychological and emotional development, physical disabilities and learning difficulties, questions that parents might ask and risk assessment.

The production of Dance Teaching Essentials has been supported by the Regional Arts Lottery Programme through London Arts.

Available from Dance UK and partner organisations.
Full price £7.50 plus p&p, discounts available for bulk purchase.
Review copies available.

Hi balletowoman! The book is published tomorrow and DanceUK tell me that they are just about to put the details up on their website.

They were impressed that you had shown so much interest! The initial orders they have received does suggest that they have found a niche market.
