Credits: Although you will not receive certification in our method by attending this workshop, the introductory teacher training workshop is a prerequisite for future Dance for PD certification. We do not offer Continuing Education credits at this time, but we're happy to provide you with a letter of participation, upon request, after the workshop.
Coordination of programs: Dance for PD classes may already exist in or be planned for your community. Since Dance for PD programs function collaboratively rather than competitively, we'd like you to be aware of local programs that are on-going or about to be launched. These programs may be looking for additional teachers or assistants. We can help you make contact with local teachers and coordinators. To find a list of classes around the world, please click here.
