it’s ‘modern’ dance gender neutral and highly themed! The children will be everything from jungle animals to robots, circus performers to mermaids!
10. Is Groove Child suitable to use in children’s acting classes at my dance school?
Yes, definitely! It works really well in performing arts classes but obviously has an emphasis on dance and is intended to ultimately help dancer’s tap into their imaginations and use more expression in their dancing. But yes it can be incorporated as part of acting classes for your dancers.
11. Are there any syllabus sample videos online we can see?
12. Does the online offer or full course carry CPD and a certificate?
There is no certificate or official hours of CPD associated with purchasing Purple online because it is not a ‘course’ as such – you simply get access to the music, syllabus videos and manual to learn and use at your leisure. The full in-person licensee course will give you official Groove Child teacher licensee status of the junior syllabus (initially, with the option to add Intermediate levels at a later date), a certificate confirming your official Groove Child licensee status, and yes the course carries 6 hours CPD.
