This year’s Teachers Conference was held at the Stamford Plaza, Sydney Airport.  There were delegates from all over Australia who enjoyed a full weekend working together.  First up on Saturday the delegates danced alongside Stephen Perez in a musical theatre workshop, followed by a contemporary session with Jessica Hesketh.
The delegates were then taken out of their comfort as they participated in an Afro Groove and Hip Hop class with Sarine Perdedjian.
Guest presenter Taryn Brumfitt introduced us to The Body Image Movement (BIM) which is an internationally recognised crusade that was founded on the belief that your body is not an ornament, it’s the vehicle to your dreams. BIM believes that everyone has the right to love and embrace their body, regardless of shape, size, ethnicity or ability. By travelling the globe, Taryn Brumfitt is working to put an end to body loathing and spread the message of body loving.
There were sessions on yoga, safe dance practice, group-work and solving problems of all kinds and, to top it off, a fancy-dress dinner where everyone went all out to win the prize for most original costume.  It was a weekend of sharing, talking, problem solving, networking and just being one big happy family of teachers, all with one mission in mind – to empower girls for life!
