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. 

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:

  • Creating choreography for students
  • Using non-verbal communication, focusing on empowering and teaching students through performance, movement and gesture
  • Playbuilding and characterisation.

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