Education is an integral part of Green Candle’s work. The impetus and emphasis of our work is based on the creative, giving every participant the opportunity to explore and experiment with his/her own creativity and the support and technical skills to accomplish this. Green Candle is at the forefront in developing and delivering training programmes for dance practitioners, performers, choreographers, school teachers, physiotherapists, care workers and other health professionals to develop their skills in using dance within a variety of settings.
