Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to establish an effective learning environment through identifying and implementing safe dance and movement teaching methods.

The unit applies to those who are teachers in dance schools or studios, as well as people responsible for teaching movement skills for recreational or remedial purposes. Individuals are responsible for the output of others and usually work without supervision. They may be delivering lessons based on a specific syllabus, learning program or set of teaching resources prepared by others. Alternatively, they may be conducting classes which are not based on a syllabus.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
