The NDTA, the subject association for dance, is offering primary schools exceptional training and resources to teach dance from Reception to Year 6.

The courses are run by expert trainers and supported by resources based on Complete Guide to Primary Dance, Lyn Paine.

Training can be bought by a school, cluster of schools, chains and school/local partnerships.

National Primary Dance courses have been delivered in many areas of England and are very well received by teachers and senior managers.

We are offering training for teachers to improve subject knowledge and confidence to build a high quality and sustainable programme of dance in schools.
