Graduate – Professional Dancers’ Postgraduate Teaching Certificates

After a long hiatus from the world of ballet, I chose the PDPTC programme because it provides a critical approach to dance pedagogy and offers a framework for teaching students of all ages which I felt was important to me. The possibility of distance learning combined with a summer intensive study period in Berlin was another ideal aspect and gives the programme a flexibility which suited my personal needs.

I knew it would be challenging to combine work, family and becoming a student again after so many years, however, the support provided during the programme helped me cope with all of these demands.

The opportunities provided by studying programmes such as the PDPTC are a gift for professional dancers and I was delighted to be able to participate, fully aware of how in the past, academic degrees in dance were not easily attainable for professional ballet dancers of my generation.
