Professional Development Workshop (Secondary performing arts teachers)
Remote Leaders Mentoring Program
Professional Development from the Australian Ballet Education and Outreach Team
Friday 10th July | 10am-12pm (Melbourne time)
Join The Australian Ballet Education and Outreach team for a professional development session focused on secondary performing arts teachers.
Explore choreographic elements and creative tasks based around the productions of The Australian Ballet. You will leave with useful ideas to support dance in your classroom and to support the learning of other subjects.
Expect to explore topics such as:
- safe warm up
- choreographing to a curricular theme
- engaging all students in movement
- empowering students as makers and responders
Who is the session for? Secondary performing arts teachers or those working to a similar level in the community.
This session will be delivered online via Microsoft Teams. You will be sent a link to join prior to the session.
Microsoft Teams does not require you to download an app or sign up, you will be able to join via the link within your web browser. You will be able to interact and ask questions during the session using the chat box function.
Please check your internet and sound are working prior to the session.
The content is aimed at those teaching performing arts at a secondary school or equivalent community dance groups etc.
The session will be part movement and part discussion and you are welcome to adapt movements, taking part only in what you are comfortable with. We understand that most people will only have a small amount of space, but if you are able to clear a little bit of room to join in with the warm-up and some movements that would be ideal. Dance experience is not necessary.
The session will be taught by a member of The Australian Ballet Education and Outreach team and will result in a certificate of participation (linked to AITSL standards). Participants are encouraged to continue their learning through our Remote Leaders Mentoring Program and we will provide a link to join the online units.
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.
