Continuing Professional Development


An important part of our mission is to support our members in their professional development and ongoing learning.

We are currently offering regular monthly dances held by teachers for teachers: Feet 1st. Please see here for details and next dates.


The Turning of the Seasons


4 times a years, when the wheel of the season is shifting, our monthly dances take another turn and focus on a specific area of professional development and education.

For example : diversity, equity and inclusion work on the dance floor ; music and DJ skills;,non-violent communication; sexuality; creative processes such as writing / theatre / voice work in conscious movement spaces, etc.

These "Tuning of the Seasons" sessions are held for 2 hours by a teacher expert of that field.

They are free for ICMTA members and open to non-members with an entrance fee.

If you have a particular skill or field of knowledge you would like to offer, please let us know at info@icmta.com. Expert teachers are paid for these events.

ZOOM TUTORIAL

In March 2020, right at the beginning of all the lock-downs, Sarah Davies very swiftly offered ICMTA members a Zoom tutorial on teaching classes online. Many of us are still grateful to her for having helped us begin this new era of our teaching.

The full video is available for members in the Resources For Members section.

While we make every effort to ensure that the information on this site is accurate, we cannot guarantee that everything is up-to-date when you read it. Please check with us, or the ICMTA member concerned, if it is important.
