* The Safe in Dance International Healthy Dance Practice CPD Certificate has been developed and written by international leaders in healthy dance practice and is endorsed by the Council for Dance Education and Training to award 60 hours of CPD through independent study. It evidences knowledge in the key areas of safe dance practice that are essential for dance teachers working in all dance genres and settings. The cost of taking the Healthy Dance Practice Certificate is £140.  

Each of these broad topics can be tailored to your needs. Sessions can be delivered to professional performance groups or performers in training and can also act as continued professional development for teachers, choreographers, and/or directors.  The workshops can be delivered on-site at Trinity Laban or in your own studio or place of work. Sessions are highly interactive and applied in nature, encouraging your full participation in applying acquired knowledge to your practice.

We are enthusiastic about the benefits Dance Science can provide to improve training methods, enhance performance and exchange knowledge that helps you dance longer, dance stronger and keeps you on the stage.

"A lot of our company members are now in their thirties and thinking about how they may have done it differently. Thinking about different career paths. What I think is wonderful is that the majority of them want to talk to the next generation about things perhaps they didn't do right first time around." - Managing Director

We are working closely with NIDMS partner One Dance UK in the provision of these educational workshops.
