Professional Development & Resources

"Brilliant... a massive creative confidence boost" - CPD participant

The Place is passionate about teaching and learning, and we like nothing better than to share what we know and what we’re currently exploring. Our courses and workshops are popular, effective and affordable. We offer training in your school setting in sessions of 1.5 hours upwards, starting at £350 for up to 20 members of staff. Subjects for teachers include:

  • The Basics – an introduction to teaching dance in primary schools
  • Refresh your dance practice: creative ideas for working with students of all ages
  • Creating successful cross-curricular dance lessons

We are always happy to design a course, INSET day or staff development session to your requirements. If you’d like to discuss bringing professional development sessions into your school, including whole staff training days/twilight workshops, please contact  


We produce printed and digital resources for dance education, and offer inspiring professional development for teachers and dance artists.

Dance Quest Resource for Teachers 
This resource contains everything you need to teach dance, including warm ups, games and choreographing, as well as developing, evaluation and performing. Designed for non-dance specialists, but with plenty of ideas to inspire the seasoned dance teacher too.

We also share learning resources produced by our visiting companies to help you make the most of your visit to the theatre or to contact them to arrange a workshop in your school/college.

Our visiting companies may be able to provide resources to help you make the most of your visit to the theatre; please visit our What’s On Page to contact them directly, if you require any resources or to arrange a workshop in your school/college.
