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:

  • Engaging students through movement, music and drama
  • 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.

Completing the Disability Dance Teacher Workshop will contribute 10 hours of Registered Professional Learning addressing standards 1.5.2, 4.1.2 & 6.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation.
