Monday blogging - More about Sg2
With only just over a week to go before the Sg2 application deadline, here's your chance to learn more about the teacher training you will gain...
2. Teacher Training:
The life of a dancer in Sg2 will be exciting and varied, each week will have exciting new challenges and opportunities. Part of this journey includes the development of each dancer’s teaching skills.
Sg2 will reflect a working professional dance company and as part of this the dancers will also join in Stopgap’s extensive community practice. There will be regular teacher training sessions lead by senior members of the company to equip the Sg2 dancers with the skills they will need to deliver high quality inclusive dance sessions in various community settings.
The teacher training will include supporting and leading one of our established youth companies; developing each dancer's own teaching style and choreographic voice, as well as training to be a teacher of Stopgap’s IRIS syllabus. The Sg2 dancers will each be assigned a Stopgap artist as a mentor to help them make the most of their time with the company and support them with the development of both their artistic and teaching practice.
If you think Sg2 could be for you, get your skates on and apply through our website - applications close on 29th March.
