CPD: A Shift in Thinking – Exploring inclusivity and accessibility in our studios and beyond

This 2.5 hour webinar will support teachers in teaching students with differ-abilities. It will aim to bring greater awareness of how we can include a diversity of people into the studio and to consider the most engaging ways of teaching people with differ-abilities.


  • To encourage a shift in mindset of how we approach accessibility, inclusivity, diversity and disability
  • To bring awareness and understanding of common differ-abilities and explore how this population may experience dance
  • To offer practical suggestions and strategies that can help our dance communities to overcome the barriers we face
  • To provide a space for teachers to discuss and share experiences, concerns and successes

Learning Outcomes:

On completion of the course/workshop teachers will:

  • Have a greater understanding of the barriers and challenges people with differ-abilities face
  • Have more awareness of how they can address those challenges and barriers within their studios to provide a more inclusive and aware environment
  • Have had an opportunity to discuss and learn new strategies for working with students with neuro-diversity and differ-abilities
  • Have the confidence to encourage a wider diversity of students into their studios

Recommended Preparation:

Teachers will be required to reflect on their own teaching and bring examples of challenges and successes they have had when teaching students with differ-abilities.


This course will be held online via Zoom
