What Is It?

This is a programme run throughout the year for Senior AwA students interested in further acro and dance teacher training. Participants will be taught how to teach, spot and correct acro skills, with multiple dedicated teacher training days throughout the year, accumulating in an ADTA teaching certification after a year of participation.


All Student Teachers will be on a 2-3 week rotation in which 2-3 student teachers will assist teachers with weekly classes, giving participants an opportunity to put their training to work with other students.


There will be 2 intakes - Summer and Winter. Participants should be able to commit to at least 8 weeks of in-class lessons per half year, however, exact dates are flexible around student teachers' other dance, school and family commitments. Winter intake will be in time for Term 3.
