Join a CDT class any time…CDT dance terms run for ten weeks with the ACT school terms with extra holiday classes. All CDT classes are suitable for ages 16+ except CDTeens classes, which are for 12 – 20 years. Classes follow a term plan, so for your best benefit CDT encourages regular attendance from the beginning of the term. Term classes will run on public holidays by prior arrangement by teachers and students. Private classes can be arranged on request but are subject to the availability of the studio and an appropriate teacher.

Teacher PL with Oliver Ransan-Elliot 1pm to 4pm, Saturday 15 July 2017
We were very fortunate to have Oliver as our teacher for the afternoon. Oliver is an experienced physiotherapist and Pilates instructor with a background in dance – he was a dancer with the Australian Ballet Company and the West Australian Ballet Company. He has a special interest in rehabilitation for dancers. Oliver is well qualified to offer us an expert perspective on the topic of our workshop: biomechanics and dance.
Through this lens we explored what can be learned from current academic literature and how we can take these insights into teaching a variety of styles of dance. We examined what it means to be fit for dance, ways of assisting our students to increase their fitness (flexibility, strength and endurance) and decrease their risk of injury. We also touched on the science of pain.
Free to 2017 CDT teachers, $75 to others, all welcome.
