Dancer Teachers

Students have lectures in basic anatomy, health and safety and life span development as well as tuition in voice projection skills, psychology and history of dance. Analysis of technique is essential to a young teacher. This is delivered in DDI (Grades 1-5) and DDE (Grades 6- Intermediate) to assist the students in understanding the development and progression of the grades through to major level. Music plays a great part in any teachers development these lectures are interspersed with the DDE Modules as are classes in choreography.
