This course aims to teach generic skills such as leadership, organisation, planning, communication and team work through various dance styles such as bhangra, street, musical theatre, salsa, tutting and jazz to name a few. It is a fun and practical qualification which has no entry requirements or exams to sit. In addition to completing the 5 tutor led sessions students must then volunteer with children or young people delivering dance sessions for a minimum of 5 hours to pass the course.
This course aims to develop students to be able to independently run their own dance sessions. This course is a progression pathway to those who wish to undertake a career in teaching Dance – or tutoring and inspiring others through formal dance sessions. In addition to strengthening leadership skills, students will develop their foundation of choreography, adapting dance sessions to meet learner needs and engagement with their learners through motivation techniques and behaviour management. The teaching will take place through theoretical and practical methods such as Bollywood, contemporary, disco, hip-hop, cheerleading and other art forms.
Through the use of adventurous, problem solving and team building activities this stimulating course develops many personal qualities including listening and conversation skills, social interaction, confidence in group situations and giving and receiving feedback. Students will take part in both theory and hands-on sessions which are an excellent foundation to moving onto the Level 2 Leadership Skills course. In addition to completing the residential course, to complete the qualification students must then complete a reflective diary of 3 situations where they have taken part in group work or team work activities with 2 months of completing the course.
