Professional Development Opportunities

Create empathic, inclusive and dynamic spaces through dance!

The Dandelion Method is the foundation of our creative programs for girls and young women. Through dance, we support girls to uncover the artist within, discover and refine their leadership skills, and build community.

But the benefits of the Dandelion Method are not limited to the dance studio, or to girls-only programs. Our phenomenal facilitators are available to run professional development workshops on the basics of the Dandelion Method for educators, social workers and other professionals that work with children and youth.

In our workshops, participants learn how they can incorporate dance and creative movement into their own work in order to:

  • encourage students to explore their communities and the world around them
  • support students to use their lived experiences and individual perspectives in the creative process
  • model behaviours that teach students to celebrate each other’s unique strengths and perspectives
  • support student’s critical literary skills
  • cultivate authenticity, trust, and empathy between groups of students
  • support students in creating inclusive dance works based on their diverse experiences
  • support students social and emotional health
  • provide opportunities for students to share their work with others, thereby promoting the exchange of new ideas and challenging stereotypes

We are booked at conferences and professional development training for school boards across the country. Check out our recent bookings
