For dance professionals who want to build their portfolios and skills, Ausdance Victoria offers the Dance Teaching Skill Set.

In the world of ever changing rules and regulations, standards and protocols, the Dance Teaching skill set is perfect for updating your teaching skills, knowledge and experience, expectations, standards, laws and regulations.

The skill set is a comprehensive training program that includes modules on anatomy, safe dance, understanding learners’ needs, dance teaching practices, planning lessons and units of work, giving feedback, evaluation and professional, legal and ethical considerations for dance teaching.

It is offered as blended learning (face to face and online) and is suitable for participants who have danced for many years, or who have undertaken full-time dance training.
