Dance teaching for the 21st century: Practice & Innovation (Sydney)
The conference seeks to bring together dance teachers, educators, researchers, historians and scholars from across a variety of dance disciplines to discuss practices and innovations within the context of dance teaching in this century.
The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) has been at the forefront of dance education and teaching for nearly 100 years. As dance and dance pedagogies evolve, the RAD continues to be committed to leading and innovating dance teacher education and training. In today’s rapidly-evolving dance ecology, how do past practices inform current trends? How do recent innovations shape the way we learn and teach dance and ensure safe dance practices?
The conference aims to address:
- Current local and international dance trends and practices in pedagogies for dance, education and training
- The role of past models of dance teacher training and education in current day practice
- Impact of innovation and technologies on the learning and teaching of dance
- Understanding the influence of dance heritage in today’s rapidly evolving dance ecology
- Approaches for embedding safe dance practice in dance teacher training and education
- The role of other forms of training to support dancer and dance teacher education
- Global perspectives on the role of dance competitions in the training and education of children, adolescents and young adults
