Finally, things are moving on, and I am happy to announce one of a few news!
I am glad to join ISTD as Lecturer to deliver programmes of study to student teachers studying Level 6 Diploma in Dance Pedagogy. I can’t wait to be working with a group of international practitioners keen to improve their teaching skills.
The Diploma in Dance Pedagogy is delivered through lecture-based seminars and practical dance intensives with mentor support from experienced practitioners between taught sessions. The qualification provides experienced dance teachers and professional dancers with a programme that builds on previous training, knowledge and experience. It will take teaching to the next level and enhance dance skills. The DDP is regulated at Level 6, equivalent to the final year of an undergraduate degree.
Established in 1904, the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) is a registered educational charity and membership association with a mission to:
Educate the public in the art of dancing in all its forms.
Promote knowledge of dance.
Provide up-to-date techniques for members and maintain and improve teaching standards.
With approximately 6,000 members in over 55 countries worldwide, the Society conducts over 120,000 examinations each year. It was recently listed by Ofqual as one of the top 20 largest awarding organisations in England and in the top 5 for delivery of performing arts examinations. The Society aspires to be a world leader in dance education, setting the benchmark for best practice through our extensive syllabi and teacher training. It is committed to becoming a dynamic, future-focused organisation that promotes the social, cultural, physical and educational benefits of dance for all (ISTD, 2021).
