We trust you had a great summer break and are all set for the autumn term.
New to Write Dance and keen to get started? We know from the very positive feedback we receive that the training really does help participants understand the principles of Write Dance and gives confidence when using the books. If you cannot get to, or host, a training, you can still get started rather than wait. You can purchase the books (click on the link )
http://writedancetraining.com/resources/ read through the themes and movement instructions, listen to the music/songs and choose one to try out with your class. Aim to teach the movements first (at carpet time or during a PE session) and then once the children are familiar with music and movements have a go at the mark making. If you have questions do check our FAQ page on the website or email us firstname.lastname@example.org
For those of you awaiting news of training spaces we are continuing to work with individual schools and local authorities who want to host training as we find that this is the easiest and most economical ways of offering training around the UK. There are currently no spaces at schools in September as all these trainings are fully booked; although we will keep you updated regarding spaces that emerge for the autumn term. We send this info via the newsletter. You can also check the events page www.writedancetraining.com/events. We do have availability in the autumn term for schools who may want to host a training. Do contact us for more information email@example.com

All our very best for the term ahead
