Develop your skills to deliver dance in school and community settings with a self-paced training program delivered by The Australian Ballet Education and Outreach team. In person and online.
The sessions will be taught by a member of The Australian Ballet's Education Team and result in a certificate of participation (linked to AITSL standards).
The sessions are supported by resources on The Australian Ballet's EduHub. EduHub is an online resource designed for school teachers and students of all levels, which provides resources built around the works of The Australian Ballet.
Training for this course will take place in both online and practical based learning environments through various modes of learning such as online webinars, readings, case studies, simulated practical projects and tasks with your class or group. During your dance teaching course, you can expect to undertake the role of a dance teacher from start to finish with tasks based around real classes and scenarios.
This program is completed over a maximum of 20 hours over a maximum duration of 12 months. The volume of learning refers to the total amount of time that a student would be expected to dedicate to the successful completion of the course. It includes the structured part of the course as defined above, as well as the self-study, research and practising of skills that a student would do in their own time.
This distance education program allows you the flexibility to complete the course in a self-paced manner around other commitments such as work or study through flexible online learning. The program is organised to ensure the essential skills and knowledge are learnt to be able to deliver dance to a general level with your group. Theory assessments are comprised of written as well as practical based project tasks with dance students that will involve the submission of videos as evidence.
Who is the course for?
This course is aimed at people who are looking to incorporate dance in their classrooms or community activities, such as school teachers; pre-service teachers; community leaders; senior students; dance students who are studying; and people with a physical education background.
You do not need to be trained in dance to benefit from this program. It is well suited to anyone who would like to upskill to use dance and movement in a community setting.
When does the program start?
This program will start in 2020. A variety of dates will be available for physical sessions (in the areas that our Education program reaches).
The online component is self-paced and can be completed across a 12-month period.
