ISTD Springboard 2017

Date: Sunday 30 Apr 2017
Venue: The Old Finsbury Town Hall, London
ISTD Springboard 2017

Event summary:

ISTD Springboard 2017 is for our next generation of teachers, choreographers and performers

Event details:

Don’t miss this exciting day – an opportunity to work with some of the industry’s most innovative and inclusive professional artists. Through inspiring workshops, demonstrations and lectures we will explore the diversity of dance.

On Sunday 30th April 2017 at The Old Finsbury Town Hall in London, a second Springboard for creative teaching, inclusion and integration will take place. This will be the second event of its kind and will be focused on targeting any student who is currently undertaking a teaching programme. 

The day will include a series of creative workshops, practical demonstrations, lectures and sharing performances. 

The tutors will all be professional practitioners with specific creative skills. The day will commence at 9.30am and finish at 6.30pm, and includes a healthy lunch and professional performance demonstration.

New Ideas
Experience is a great teacher, but it can mean that we tend to do what we have done before rather than explore new ideas. But with focused CPD we can open up new possibilities, new knowledge and new skill areas, helping us to stay interested and interesting. By coping positively with change and updating our skill sets, teachers gain efficiency, which builds on their credibility and most importantly, their confidence.

With this in mind, a NEW initiative commencing 2017/18 for a SPRINGBOARD EXPERIENCE is being piloted. The project will invite 12–16 dancers, currently undertaking ISTD Teacher Training courses and recommended by their teachers to participate as creative dancers in small groups in an exciting venture that will be unique to the ISTD. The  programme will focus on innovative choreography and take the work to a diverse range of events in the UK and Internationally. 

There is so much to share outside our shores as the Vietnam Schools Tour in August 2016 evidenced, and following this first brave initiative we are able to build on the future contracts and career challenges for our performer/teacher/choreographers.

Book now, places are limited – £40 each, includes participating, observing and sharing work as well as a healthy lunch box for all participants.
