Disability Inclusion Dance Workshop for Teachers

The Disability Inclusion Dance Workshop for Teachers is a two day professional learning course aimed at developing teachers' skills in the performing arts for students with a disability. 

This is an excellent opportunity for teachers to develop high-level skills in making dance works, engaging in music practices and exploring dramatic contexts for students with disabilities. Teachers will gain practical insight and knowledge, with the skills applicable to a wide range of disabilities. they will be equipped with teaching strategies to take back to the classroom. 

The program is suitable for teachers who have one or multiple students with a disability and is open to teachers from both government and non-government schools.

Sessions are facilitated by industry professionals and Department of Education teachers with specialised skills. Sessions will focus on:

Numbers for this program are limited. We will accommodate as many from each school as possible.
