Healthy Dance Certificates
All of the SiDI Healthy Dance Certificates provide essential Continuing Professional Development for you as a dance practitioner or dancer. Our own quality assurance combined with backing from the Council for Dance Education and Training means that our Certificates are recognised and valued in the sector and have transferable international currency. Whichever dance style you work in regardless of level, (recreational, pre-professional or professional), we offer a range of options for professional endorsement of your healthy dance practice.
We currently have four Certificates in healthy dance, each with a slightly different focus depending on your individual needs.
Depending on your initial level of familiarity with the principles of healthy dance and how confident you feel in your ability to evidence your understanding effectively, we have a range of ways in which you can study towards the Healthy Dance Certificates.
SiDI provide study guidance to all registered Candidates who have one year from registration with us to submit documents and material for review. We do not need you to attend an examination or training session, you can deliver everything to us for review through download, email or post. You can study for the certificate at your own pace, either by undertaking the research on your own, or by taking up one of the additional provision options.
