Have you always wanted to get yourself a certificate for ballet teaching but you could not afford one due to not enough time or fear you might fail? Well, our study is available in part-time in almost any country in the world. The programme will teach you a lot about the ballet, covering versatile and important topics that you will need for further knowledge expansion, or even teaching others. With our certificate, you can dance and teach others to dance!
How long does it take to receive it?
You will be required to study at least two years this program before you receive the certificate. A lot of people might think that is easy to pass this programme and finish it. Yes, as long as you devote at least 20 hours per week. Do have in mind that you will be required to attend the Intensive Study Period during the first year while you will be able to study online for the final year. This is due to the specific requirements that you must practice live with the teacher.
However, we have many teaching centres worldwide so you should not fly 1000 miles to attend two-hour class. Instead, look for the closest one to your location and attend the lecture/class. Just bear in mind the fact that you MUST know English language (reading, writing and communicating) in order to participate in this education.Also, the first year is more of a theoretical knowledge, although you will learn basic things. The second year focuses more on the teaching experience, as you will teach others to dance as well.
Once you are done with your programme, you will receive an award for the successful completion of programme, which is the Certificate In Ballet Teaching Studies. This opens you the opportunity to become a registered and certified teacher who can work in many institutions that offer the ballet services. Once you are certified, you are welcome everywhere!
What do you study?
At the beginning, for the first three months, you will obtain observation skills and techniques that each teacher must have, by simple observation of the students and kids. Here you will also learn about some pedagogical aspects you will use throughout your career. The second module involves learning of safety, responsibilities and health. You will learn how to treat other students once you become a teacher, a lot of government policies and other useful things you will need.
Now, the second year offers more hands-on experience and real-life scenarios. You will observe and learn from the teaching assistant, handle an own class where you will need to have at least 40 hours of teaching and tutoring. At the same time, you will have your own support and supervisor who will be in charge of you.
The final module will be a real life exam, where you will see how much you know and how much you don’t. The last part will involve the demonstration of the learned skills. This will be done through written exams, certificates of attendance and other ways of proving that you have learned the necessary skills.
