If you’re looking to add something a little different to your teaching repertoire, you’ve come to the right place. Using hand-held apparatus and Medau Elements teachings, you’ll be offering your class participants an exciting and challenging way to move whilst releasing your natural creativity.
Medau Elements is three standalone one-day courses during which instructors will learn the techniques of their chosen apparatus; balls, hoops or clubs. Instructors will be taught:
How to handle and interact with the apparatus
How to teach effective apparatus-based exercises to their class participants
How to use Medau Elements in their classes
There will also be pair and group work/discussions. Instructors will be assessed on the days through practical teaching sessions.
Please note: You must have a Level 2 Exercise to Music or dance teaching equivalent to be eligible for Medau Elements training. If you are unsure if your qualification is eligible, please contact our training team here.
Prior learning is not required for Medau Elements. You will receive worksheets throughout the course which your tutor will go through with you.
Using Medau Elements
This course has been designed to feed into your existing or future classes. There is no set choreography or routines for Medau Elements, leaving you to explore your own creativity and that of your class participants. The use of bespoke apparatus is something not widely used and using the Medau Elements methods of movement ensures you are able to offer something different to your classes.
