Teachers' Training School
of 19th Century Dance of Società di Danza
National Federation

The Teachers' Training School of Società di Danza, founded in 1993, tends to the training of new teachers and the constant updating of those who are already teachers.
We study the system of Società di Danza in its theoretical and practical aspects, with particular attention to the teaching of the whole existing repertoire and to the musical elements.
The topics include: Technique (19th Century and Scottish dance), repertoire, History of dance, History and historical dance, Teaching, Dance and Music.


The aim of the school is to train new teachers who want to take responsibility to develop the activity of Società di Danza in new cities.

All the teachers of the Società di Danza participate in the seminar as the School is the place and time of the improvement and collective growth of teachers and aspiring teachers.
The Teachers' School must guarantee that teachers are the nucleus, both ideological and organizational, of the System and of the life of the Società di Danza.

The Teacher Seminar is organized into annual series of intensive stage cycles on a monthly basis, with specific admission and participation rules, and Regulations.
