Artists Mentoring - New Offers from Danielle Teale Dance

This year launches the official Danielle Teale Dance mentoring and coaching packages. Two special packages developed to formalise and streamline the offer available to dance artists looking for support and to make a step change in their practice.

The AEP mentoring and coaching offer is open to anyone looking for one-to-one support, shadowing opportunities or choreographic development in community and participatory settings. Three strands offer flexibility for all needs and can be made bespoke to each individual.

Danielle is an excellent mentor and I feel very privileged to have worked alongside her. She has such a wealth of experience and skill and her energy, creativity and passion are inspirational. She is always happy to give advice and support and to share resources. As well as encouraging me to reflect on my own practice she frequently offered constructive and detailed feedback on my teaching. Her mentoring equipped me with the skills, knowledge and confidence I needed to be able to set up my own Dance for Parkinson’s class; it was invaluable.

Danielle has an astute and analytical approach and guides artists to discover methods and processes that work for them. As an internationally recognised specialist in the field of dance and Parkinson’s, she has developed a bespoke mentoring programme for artists working in this practice to share her skills and experience for the development of the sector. She has previously collaborated with People Dancing; Dance for Parkinson's Network and Trinity Laban's Dance & Health Learning Group to offer this bespoke mentoring programme to emerging dance in health artists.

I chose Danielle as a mentor after seeing her teach - her direct and fresh approach as a dance practitioner made me want to work with her. She gave me concrete tools on how to effectively lead coherent and well structured sessions and helped me deeply reflect on my role as a dance teacher. I very much enjoyed the time we spent together discussing and sharing experiences and I feel I gained more confidence in my practice as a result.

Out of London, into Seoul

This autumn, I was pleased to be invited by Dance for PD ® founding teacher David Leventhal, to collaborate with him on a CPD programme in Seoul, South Korea.

Taking my practice, from a place / location / situation in which I have been exploring, moving, thinking, delving and discussing for the last 10 years, and placing it outside of all the usual cultural and practical understanding I’m surrounded by in the UK, was both a lesson in communication and a challenge of my unvoiced bias or assumptions.
