Write Dance creator Ragnhild Oussoren will hold a full-day Write Dance training for Early Years, Lower Primary and Specialist teachers on May 19th, 2014 at the Zurich International School, Baden Campus.

What is Write Dance?

Write Dance is a developmental program to build fine motor skills and writing ability in children aged 3 to 8. It is also appropriate for use with children of special educational needs. Students begin with structured scribbling, creating up and down, left and right and round and straight movements. Students use the whole body to create movements and then work on a surface, e.g. on a table or in a sand box. These movements are performed to music and involve imagination and role play. More information about Write Dance can be found here.

Who is training intended for?

Write Dance training is intended for Early Years (3 to 5-year-olds), Lower Primary (Grades 1 and 2) or Specialist (Music, Art, P.E.) teachers. Teachers of students with special educational needs, e.g. Occupational Therapists, etc. would also benefit from the training.

Location: Zurich International School, Baden Campus, Mellingerstrasse 18, 5400 Baden
Cost: 100 CHF (includes lunch and course materials); payment must be received before the course date.
Registration: Training sign up can be found here. Places are limited to 25 teachers.
