TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM
Creative Movement Teacher Training
Our Creative Movement curriculum is tailored to teach the art of dancing to children between the age of three to five. We believe, especially with this age group, that ‘how’ to teach is as important as ‘what’ to teach. Apart from rigorous training in dance and creative movement exploration ( Body/ Space / Energy /Time) we have also integrated various modules of Early childhood education into our teacher training program. We have covered concepts like developmental milestones, child development theories, the Carla Hannaford approach to learning, classroom management with a focus on managing an active environment and Anne Green Gilbert’s Brain Dance. We have made our presence felt in the dance industry and we believe that the sky is the limit! Our track record shows an upward and onward trend with our humble beginnings to where we are now!
Becoming a part of the Creative Movement Program for age 3 to 6 years:
If you wish to become part of our ever growing team following are the two options :-
- Dance Educator (Agile Kids): This model runs on the basis that the creative movement and dance classes are held during school hours as a part of the curriculum. www.agilekids.in
- After Hours Dance Educator (ToddleFeet): This model runs on the basis that the classes will be held after school as an extra-curricular optional activity. The same can be either sanctioned by the school or could be undertaken by an individual with a private set up.
