The Royal Ballet School is proud to launch a new teachers’ course starting in September 2014. The Diploma of Dance Teaching will build on the highly successful Professional Dancer Teachers’ Course and the expertise of the school’s Dance Partnership & Access Programme, to provide a sound foundation in both technical and creative approaches to teaching ballet. The course replaces all previous Royal Ballet School teachers’ courses. The two-year, part-time course includes opportunities to specialise in teaching in either vocational or educational settings and students will be awarded a Trinity College London Diploma in Dance Teaching and Learning (Children and Young People) on completion. This Level 6 qualification provides formal evidence to employers and parents/carers that a dance practitioner has the expertise to teach children and young people. The Diploma of Dance Teaching is suitable for current and ex-professional dancers and teachers and will provide a sound foundation in teaching ballet to a broad range of students. It will cover:
The course will be delivered by Royal Ballet School staff and visiting lecturers in The Royal Ballet School’s state of the art studios in Covent Garden, London.
Full fees: £7,000 (£3,500 per year over two years)
