Through my experience of teaching and observing human movement, and learning through trial and error. I have come to the conclusion that all children have two basic needs; they need to feel at home in their own bodies, and so gain mastery, and they need to be able to form relations.” Veronica Sherborn
This training is designed for practitioners working in SEND who are interested in exploring inclusive approach to teaching and working with movement.
The day will involve gaining an understanding of the theory behind SDM and its links to Rudolph Laban historically known as the father of European modern dance, Laban was a visionary, humanist, teacher and theoretician, whose revolutionary ideas bridged the gap between the performing arts and science.
It will involve practical sessions in which participants will experience different aspects of movement related to the whole body, space, quality and relationships. The work will look at activities suitable for children and young people with Severe and Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties. Participants will therefore need to wear suitable clothing.
The session will include film clips illustrating developmental movement in action and the skills of observation.
Workshop leader Steve Cullingford-Agnew worked closely with Veronica Sherborne and is an international course leader in SDM.
This course costs £120, lunch is included.
