Keep Fit Association Teacher Training

What is unique about the Keep Fit Association movement discipline?

The Keep Fit Association promotes physical fitness and a positive attitude to health through a balanced programme of dance inspired fitness training. Courses are structured to include guided Teaching Practice and led by tutors who are experienced practicing teachers. Students are given a thorough grounding in all aspects of the subject enabling them to teach creatively and safely whilst being responsive to the needs of their participants.

Keep Fit Association Teacher Training provides a unique opportunity to develop creativity using movement ideas from Laban’s Analysis of Movement to improve fitness. Laban’s Analysis provides a stimulus to choreography, a focus for coaching and a link with the physical objectives to produce purposeful movement that promotes both physical and mental well-being.
