There are several Teacher only groups on Social Media where teachers can exchange ideas on various matters, exam boards, admin, music systems, teaching particular steps etc. etc. However, they are also a good place to let off steam! Recently a Teacher was exasperated by teenage pupils who were getting a bit too big for their boots. So she wrote that she really dislikes these Pre-Madonnas.
Calling all dance students and their parents, dance teachers, professional dancers and retired dancers. I am writing a self-care book for dancers regarding emotional and mental health. I know what help and support I would have liked as a dancer but I am only one person. I would therefore like to hear from as many people in the dancing world, whether working or not, as to what ideas, techniques, or questions you would like answered in my book. If you have positive anecdotes of overcoming issues and how it was dealt with, please include those as well. I am also looking for therapy volunteers as case studies for the book. These will be anonymised for the book and the sessions will be free to the volunteer. I hope my book will go a little way in helping remove the shame (stigma) surrounding mental health and allow people to ask for help. N.B. Please go to my website to check my professional credentials, which you can also find on the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) website. Parents please note that I will not be offering therapy sessions to those age 15 and under and for those age 16-18, please ask your parents to contact me. Email me if you don’t want to reply openly to this post. Please share this post with others who you think may wish to contact me. email@example.com

"LOVED every second...next year make it 2 weeks!" (Mel, 2014 student) "I love you Paul and Rae. Thank you for everything you have done for me. You inspire me." (Alfie, 2014 student) "A week full of creativity, positivity, hard work, new experiences and energy." (2014 student) "This week I have enjoyed the different types of dancing and the insight into a company." (Emily, 2014 student) "I have enjoyed the experience the same, if not more than last time!" (2014 student) The students at Chantry Dance Company Summer School are a mix from ages from 11-adult, and experience levels from improver to professional. These wonderful groups of people come together during the Summer to experience a taste of what it is like to work in a professional contemporary ballet company. We ask them to take on huge challenges and every student tackles each one with determination and tenacity. By the end of the course, they are no longer a group defined by their age, ability, gender or anything else - they are simply and wonderfully a group of dance artists helping and encouraging each other on their dance journey. We will be forever proud and inspired by you all. Paul and Rae - co-Artistic Directors, Chantry Dance Company To learn more about Chantry Dance Company, please visit www.chantrydancecompany.org
