About the program
The online dance workshops are run by the NSW Department of Education Arts Unit. This program has been designed to collaborate with students and teachers to develop a performance piece for school assemblies, events and auditions.
Over 3 online workshops, tutors will provide students and their teachers with jazz dance repertoire and opportunities for schools to incorporate their own choreography and interpretation of the movement.
The program will begin with a teacher information briefing for participating teachers and support staff which will include protocols to assist with the delivery of the lesson, the choreography and ways to adjust the movement for your students. The session will also cover how to support students as they develop their final dance work.
Students will participate in a total of 3 online workshop sessions. The first two sessions will be held in Term 1, Weeks 6 and 7, and a final workshop in Term 1, Week 9. The final session will include a showcase performance of the finished work from each school.
Workshops must be actively supervised by a teacher from the school, and it is expected that student behaviour is appropriate to that of any school activity.
Please note there are limited places for the online workshops and your application does not guarantee your school’s entry into the program.
