Teacher Development

Groundspace Surgeries – a member of the team will be available after class on Fridays, from February onwards, to answer queries you may have about the program, or give funding / development advice.

Teacher Development – If you want to develop a teaching practice or to begin teaching at professional level for the first time, we encourage you to use Groundspace to offer an open class and share your practice. These open classes can take place any Friday that we don’t already hold a class and you can offer just one, or as many as you feel you need. You will receive free mentoring from Zosia Jo. Zosia has over 10 years experience teaching in a variety of settings. She has delivered teacher training internationally for community dance workers, dance teachers and youth training schemes. Zosia has an MA in Creative Practice from Independent Dance/Trinity Laban and lectures part time for University of Wales Trinity Saint David BA Dance.

To apply for teacher development, email us with dates when you could offer classes on a Friday morning.
