QB's commitment to educators

To support school teachers, we deliver Professional Development workshops for embedding dance in the classroom, and to upskill and inspire educators. Workshops can be tailored for delivery at your school during allocated Staff Professional Development days, or teachers can register for a Teacher PD workshop hosted at QB studios. Underpinned by current research, workshops are tailored for early years, primary and secondary educators, delivered by QB Education Teaching Artists, Ambassadors and special guest artists
