Central hosts annual Ballet Teacher Personal Development Day

Calendar Posted 23 May 2019

On Tuesday 21 May Central held its annual Ballet Teacher Personal Development Day.

Established in 2016 by Central’s Widening Participation and Access Department, the day is an opportunity for ballet teachers from across the UK to network and learn about the training programmes offered at Central.

The focus of this year’s course was on the transition for students going into full-time vocational training. Sessions were led by Central tutors and by One Dance UK, with a focus on student mindset and the development of student resilience. The day included Q&A sessions with Central’s degree programme tutors and students, with the opportunity to watch classes and a Ballet Central rehearsal.

Debra Cougill, Central’s Head of Widening Participation and Access said “The day serves as a fantastic opportunity to nurture Central’s invaluable links with ballet teachers across the country. The day was a chance for the teachers to have a greater insight into what their students can expect on Central’s degree programmes in Professional Dance and Performance and what other opportunities are available for pre-vocational students at the school’’.

Feedback from the day: “It was wonderful to observe Central’s classes and listen to the students and faculty. Central is a certainly a beautiful place with such a caring atmosphere. It was an informative and most importantly relevant and thoughtful day.”
