Learn, Share, MOVE! (North Essex)

Posted on behalf of The Dance Network Association CIC

Come and join The Dance Network Association for our FREE twilight evening on Wednesday 12 September in Colchester with guest artist Tom Hobden. Sign up for the evening and come and find out how to get more involved in our north Essex network to increase and develop your skills in dance and meet other like-minded teachers. 

You will need to wear something you are able to comfortably move in and be prepared to get dancing. 

We promise you will go away with smiles on your faces and plenty of tools to take back to your settings to use and develop with your learners. 

This evening is a FREE dance training event open to any teacher in educational or community settings. You do NOT need to be a dance specialist, neither do you have to currently deliver dance in your school/setting you are welcome to come as a TA, SLT, head teacher and so on...

The North Essex Dance Teachers Network has been running since 2016 with mainly local secondary school teachers and freelance artists. Each year participants take part in 3 twilight evenings, 1 full day annual conference and are invited to bring a group to our annual festival in the Summer to share your performance pieces. 

We hope you can join us and very much look forward to dancing with you.
