Series 2: Inspire to be

We are unable to offer Inspire seminars at the moment due to COVID-19. The practical component of our seminars is integral to their delivery. We will deliver Inspire as soon as we are able to safely return to the studio.

In the meantime you may be interested in our Enlighten webinars for dance teachers. These webinars are an excellent supplement to our Inspire series and ideal for developing teachers’ CPD portfolio. Find out more.

Series 2: Inspire to be follows on from Series 1: Inspire and consists of four one-day seminars that contain a mix of observation and practical study. Classes are delivered to the students of participating teachers.

Through observing our experienced tutors in action and participating in practical sessions, teachers will learn how to apply and embed the knowledge and understanding gained in Series 1: Inspire.

Inspire to be classes take place at our studios on Floral Street in Covent Garden.

It is recommended participants experience a seminar from Series 1 before starting Series 2.
