The Importance of CPD in Dance Teachers

I'm relatively new in my profession as a dance teacher and as such am still learning. Always finding a new tip here or there and thinking about the next qualification to gain. On top of this, I love seeing what other teachers are up to and what they're teaching different age ranges. As I get more confident in my own teaching though, I don't want this level of intrigue to stop as I feel it is a very important part of being a dance teacher. Many professions have this elusive thing called CPD, often it's tied in with their jobs as they try to get a higher position in the company, or their job role changes. Dance teaching is no different, however there often isn't the incentive to go out their and do more training.

I've been trying to force myself not to share run picture after run picture, but am finding that a little difficult. There's a couple of reasons for this, the first that the weather hasn't been amazing recently and so I've been trying to limit my time spent outside, the second running really has been the only real 'instagrammable' part of my life recently between commuting and work there's only been running, thirdly I've been trying new routes and sessions in my running recently that has inspired me to share and I've been doing so on my instagram. Because of this it may seem like I've been running way more than I actually have!
