Teacher Training  -  Teachers' Examinations


        Some of our CDs and DVDs have been specially designed
to help with the training of dance teachers.

This is a superb DVD which shows all the Allegro steps used in Intermediate Foundation and Intermediate syllabi. They are shown at normal speed and in slow motion. These steps are also shown in 22 free enchaînements similar to those used in examinations. This is an excellent opportunity to check the correct names and execution of these steps.

CD No. 21 is a new concept. It is a musicality course made up of a compact disc and written text. Musicality is being given more and more importance in dance exams today and is a little understood subject. Graham Dickson-Place has travelled extensively giving music courses to teachers and dance students.
This CD brings together all his wealth of knowledge on the subject. Detailed index of CD No. 21

CDs Nos. 36 & 38 form a another new idea. It is a music theory course made up of 2 compact discs and written text. Graham has travelled extensively giving music courses and as such has a great sympathy with teachers and dance students who are trying to learn something about music theory. It contains a careful explanation of the various aspects of music theory and over 50 music examples on the CD to help with the learning process. It also shows how to construct and mark exercises in ballet class and explains the various dance styles.  Detailed index of CD No. 38

New teachers are more and more expected to understand the basics of music theory and to know the rhythms of the various dance-styles eg. Minuet, Habanera, Polonaise, etc. You will find examples of all these dance styles on CDs Nos. 5 & 6, 7, 9 & 10, 19, 31, 34, 40 & 44. For more details please visit the catalogue page and the index pages for these CDs. Indexes
