Dance Course for Kindergarten to Yr 2 teachers

This practical course is for any teacher interested in delivering dance to children from Kindergarten to Yr 2. Using the new Australian Arts Curriculum as a basis, teachers will experience creative movement and simple set dances in thematically structured lessons. Teachers will be exposed to various types of resources that can be used in lower primary dance lessons. It is also designed to provide participants with the tools to develop their own dance programs. A limited number of participants will allow for discussion, questions and collaboration during the course. This 3 hour course meets the requirement for professional development for teachers in the ACT (through TQI).

When: 9.30am-12.30pm Sunday 2nd Nov 2014
