Dance Teacher (DT)
program provides a progressive, structured and self-paced training course for qualified and experienced dance teachers who are interested in teaching classes based on the Dance for PD® model developed by the Mark Morris Dance Group/Brooklyn Parkinson Group. This course starts with the introductory workshop featuring our acclaimed training modules, demo class and an interactive teaching practicum. Once you've completed the workshop, you'll be able to participate in virtual and in-person professional development and apply for teacher certification once prerequisites are met.
Educational & Professional Enrichment
(EPE) course is designed to provide a comprehensive and intimate look at core components of the Dance for PD program so that a wide variety of individuals without dance training or dance teaching experience can learn about our methods and benefit from our resources. EPE course participants cover training modules focusing on core philosophies and methods, issues related to working with people with Parkinson’s, safety considerations, integration of music, and general teaching approaches that can be applied to somatic practice, yoga and physical therapy. The EPE course, which also includes a seminar on administrative Best Practices and considerations, is also ideal for healthcare administrators and group coordinators. All EPE participants will observe a demo class, work directly with Dance for PD founders, and engage in interactive learning sessions with teachers from around the country. Enrichment attendees cover most of the same modules as the Dance Teachers, but are not required to develop, design and practice-teach original exercises as part of the workshop. Once you've completed the workshop, you'll be able to participate in virtual and in-person professional development.
