Training before Christmas in Nottingham

We have just agreed a  date for  a half day training in Central Nottingham  it will be Tuesday 28th November 2017. We are hosting this ourselves and it is a late decision as we have had a few enquiries from individuals in the region. This training will go ahead if we have enough numbers so do get in touch if you want to join  us.

Planning new Write Dance training with Ragnhild

We had a lovely meeting with Ragnhild (the author of Write Dance) this Summer. We discussed the new book (now available on our website) and changes to our training and shared many success stories. We are really excited that our evidence gathering project is now complete and available as a  booklet. We are delighted that we were able  to share this with Ragnhild and give her a copy.

Autumn News

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 ) 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
Training Updates
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 We do have availability in the autumn term for schools who may want to host a training. Do contact us for more information
More Write Dance and Follow Up Training
If you have received Introduction to Write Dance training, and are ready to learn more; or if you have new staff, do consider our follow-up training “More Write Dance”. These materials revisits themes and makes the progression to alphabetic family groupings with letter joins.
If you want to know more about hosting a training or follow up training do email us at and we can give you more details
You may have missed the launch of our Nursery songs for music and mark making this is additional material that we have produced using familiar songs. It is available for those who are already familiar with Write Dance principles and may have attended a training.
You can purchase the music and download at the link below for £9.99
Useful Links
This term we plan to add links on our website for useful books and resources and links to our previous articles about early mark making. We want to film some write dance in action this term too, so we will keep you posted, and share this with you when it is ready.
All our very best for the term ahead
Best wishes
Diana and Nicole
