Claire Pring B.Ed (Hons), M.A., A.S.T.
I graduated from Middlesex University in 1990 with a B. Ed (Hons) in Dance.
I taught in London until 1994 when I headed north to join Cheshire Dance as Dance Animateur for Macclesfield.
I was with Cheshire Dance for eight exceptionally happy years & this was where I began to deliver INSET under the guidance of Veronica Lewis & Julia Williams.
Since 2002 I have worked as a freelancer along with part time teaching at...
Buxton Community School, Derbyshire
Poynton High School, Cheshire
Biddulph High School, Staffordshire (where I gained my AST status)
In 2005 I completed my MA in Dance Studies.
I am currently the lead practitioner for Dance for Derbyshire; part of the Create & Dance team at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden & I devised and presented the dance content for BBC Teach 'Step by Step' as well as devising some of their podcasts for 'Let's Move' , 'Time to Move' & 'Ten Pieces'.
I have also produced resources for Oak National Academy, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Cheshire County Council & Derbyshire County Council.
I'm an ArtsMark Partner & Ambassador + a Quality Assessor for the Arts Council of England.
Like most people there's more... but I think those are the important bits... I can send you my full CV if you'd like to see!
And... of course... I have a full driving licence & an enhanced DBS.
