Some of the SimplyDance staff enjoyed a fun filled day of teacher training in London on Sunday 5th February 2017 at the beautiful Lancaster Hotel in London.
It may have been an early start but it was well worth it to join in with this variety of amazing lectures including Cha Cha Cha, Jive, Freestyle Argentine Tango amongst others.
Sadly our Principal James is still recovering form his hip surgery and had to sit on the sidelines this time, but Alex and I had great fun on the floor. Mr Graham Oswick was hilarious and brilliant in his Latin American lecture, teaching us a pair of useful groups that played with alternative timing. He developed the various actions within these amalgamations to create interesting and usable work.
After a full day of lectures from a host of top professionals we were all treated to excellent displays and had a chance to catch up with colleagues and friends. Sharing information and ideas is part of what excellent events like this are all about and this one certainly didn't disappoint.
All in all it was a fabulous day filled with excellent ideas. Thank you to the IDTA for hosting this wonderful event once more and for supporting it's members so well. We can't wait to use these new ideas in classes with our students!
