Designed for students wishing to become secondary Dance teachers.
Through lectures and practical workshop sessions focusing upon dance styles and technique, students learn how to teach this content effectively as well as learn about the issues and challenges facing dance in secondary schools. The units cover school curricula, teaching strategies and the development and assessment of teaching programmes.
All applicants are required to complete a major in dance (three years of degree level study comprising at least 6 units with no more than two at first-year level and no fewer than two units at third-year level) including all of the following: history and analysis of dance, performance, with a technique base in modern/contemporary dance and ballet, applied anatomy and kinesiology, and composition/ choreography. Dance studies must be developed as a discrete discipline. Vocationally oriented courses are not recognised as equivalent. Alternatively applicants can complete at least two years (4 units) of degree level study in dance with at least two units at level 2 or above in the previously mentioned areas, if they intend to undertake this specialisation as their minor area of study.
