Our highly experienced EdSquad teaching artists put the fun into the fundamentals of ballet, coming to your school to deliver safe, educative and inclusive dance experiences. All of our experiences are created with the Australian Curriculum and Senior Dance Syllabus in mind so that they complement the teaching and learning currently taking place in Queensland classrooms from Prep to Year 12.

In 2017, we offer five workshops which are underpinned by artistic excellence and are accessible to all students regardless of prior dance experience. They are available throughout the year at a negotiated date and time and can also be delivered at community halls (for combined-schools experiences).

 

WORKSHOP DETAILS

  • The workshops vary in duration from 40 - 60 minutes with upper Primary and High Schools being able to negotiate the best timeframe suitable for their students.
  • Teachers are invited to participate in these classes as professional development.
  • There is no minimum number of students required to register for a workshop.
  • The maximum number of students for a workshop is determined by the space limitations of the dance area.
  • There is no limit on the maximum number of workshops per school/kindergarten.

TESTIMONIALS

We absolutely loved the workshop! The students were inspired, challenged and motivated. The EdSquad teaching artist had such a sweet teaching style and we loved seeing the tutu.
Emily Briddock
Dance Teacher, Genesis Christian College

The EdSquad teaching artist was a wonderful QB ambassador. She had a great way with the students and was able to manage their behaviour as well as engage them in the workshop.
Leah Hamilton
Special Education Program Teacher, Brisbane School of Distance Education

Students were thoroughly engaged in the workshop and even non-ballet dancers enjoyed performing repertoire. Students are always in awe of professional guest teachers, and this was no exception.
Kate Gardiner
Head of Department - The Arts, Coorparoo Secondary College

The Queensland Ballet workshops were a wonderful way for our junior and senior students to learn more about the history, technique and features of this important genre of dance.  As well as being informative, EdSquad facilitators Mia and Jacob ensured that the students were welcomed, yet challenged, through very stimulating and enjoyable activities
