What others have had to say about the course:

…It was one of the best courses I have attended in my 45 years of teaching. So helpful and presented with care and knowledge that stimulated great discussions
It was great to do something non-syllabus but still very important and relevant to training the classical dancer. Turid and Sarah were excellent and very approachable – much appreciated.
Thank you so much! For your time and energy and the collective wealth of knowledge you. I learned a lot and found some great new exercises I didn’t know / hadn’t tried before. I am looking forward to integrating that into what I do with the students.
