Tuesdays are busy busy at PD we’re here there and everywhere, from Llanfair Caereinion to Welshpool to Llandrindod to Talgarth!
Powys Dance is a charitable organisation that seeks to share the transformational power of dance as far and wide as possible, delivering dance sessions that are fun, creative and ! As we grow our participatory programme, we also need to expand our team of freelance dance practitioners. We currently deliver weekly term time dance sessions to under 4s and their parent/cares, children, young people, adults, adults with disabilities and older adults across the county. Our programme is expanding quickly with workshops and classes delivered in community and school settings, and we would like to expand our team of freelance practitioners from September 2018.
We recognise that there are many routes through to dance teaching, and that’s why we would like to hear from you:
If you trained in dance years ago and are feeling rusty;
If you’ve come to dance later in life or not received formal training but are enthusiastic about developing your skills and practice;
If you have specialist skills in a dance genre but are seeking to broaden your practise;
If you’re a young dancer not formally trained but seeking a career in dance;
If you’ve got experience of leading aerobic or dance fitness sessions (e.g FitSteps, Zumba) and would like to enhance your creative dance skills.
There are also professional performance opportunities available, working on our science + dance touring productions.
What we can offer:
Training opportunities and mentoring support so that you can feel confident delivering sessions for Powys Dance.
We pay £26 per hour for session delivery, plus travel expenses.
For an informal chat and to find out more, contact our Participation Manager Louise Prosser on 07989 356690 or email email@example.com
Go on, make dance your life!

It's no secret that Powys Dance has been actively looking for practitioners in North Powys to enable us to offer more sessions to more people and we are delighted to be working with Clara in Machynlleth to deliver some Big Fish Little Fish sessions, hwre!
Our sessions for 8 months - 4 years old and their parent/ carer offer your little one an insight into the diverse world of dance, giving them a free space to explore movement, rhythm, song and play. These sessions have also been known to support parents/ grandparents/ carers, giving them the confidence to be creative movers at home.

There are so many wonderful dance fitness classes available in Llandrindod, and if you've been lucky enough to attend any of them you'll know they are delivered by some amazing instructors! We hope to be able to offer both fun and fitness in our adult dance sessions with a little bit of extra attention on both technique and style.
Well..... next Tuesday we've got our BRAND NEW adult dance class starting, and we're doing 3 weeks of Tap, and who knows, it could be the start of a crazy new tap dance love affair!
Carolyn is one of our ace freelance dance teachers, and she is so excited to be teaching adult tap for the next 3 weeks, she will try her best to cater to everyones tap ability, so if you think you might fancy it, why not come along to try it out!
The class is drop in, no need to book and don't panic if you don't have tap shoes, soft sole shoes will work just fine!
