Claire Pring

Critical Friend and Advisor

Upon graduating from Middlesex University with a B Ed (Hons) in Dance, Claire taught in London for a number of years before joining Cheshire Dance firstly as an animateur, then progressing to the role of Director. After eight years she returned to education as an Advanced Skills Teacher and also completed her MA in Dance Studies.

Currently Claire combines a number of roles including Lead Practitioner for Dance for Derbyshire CC, a member of The Royal Opera House’s ‘Create & Dance’ team alongside being a general freelancer-about-town. She has published ‘First Steps in Teaching Dance’; a guide for non-specialist primary teachers, regularly contributes to ‘TES Resources’ and wrote and presented ‘Step by Step’ for BBC’s Teach in conjunction with Cornucopia TV.

Claire has recently been appointed to One Dance UK’s Primary Advocacy Panel.

Otherwise Claire can usually be found walking across the hills & dales of Derbyshire with her dogs, often taking photographs along the way.
