Conversion (HDC to HDPC)

The Conversion Certificate applies to those dancers who have already achieved the Healthy Dancer Certificate and now want to teach or lead dance sessions. The Conversion requires a re-submission of Section Three only, this time focusing on applying all of the Core Principles to working with other dancing bodies. Working towards this Certificate promotes a focused understanding of the factors that need to be taken into account when preparing, leading and evaluating dance sessions.

Understanding your own body is a good introduction to healthy dance practice but it is vital to be able to transfer your understanding to ensure the safety and wellbeing of others. The specific participant group’s needs, abilities and desired outcomes all affect how healthy dance practice principles can be effectively applied. Your new Section Three will now demonstrate your knowledge and application of all of the Core Principles, with direct attention paid to your specific dancers and stylistic context.

Further detail and guidance on completing the Conversion Certificate is available in the Candidate pack provided on registration.

The cost of the Conversion Certificate is £80.
