Exploring The Arts Australian Curriculum with Dance Academy

The new education resource Dance Academy: Arts Education offers teachers engaging, contemporary ideas for exploring dance, health and production skills with their Middle Years’ students.

Developed in association with Ausdance, Dance Academy: Arts Education is the ACTF’s latest education resource, providing teachers with engaging classroom activities, designed to enhance students’ knowledge, skills and understanding of dance, as both the artist and the audience.

The website features video clips and behind the scenes materials from the award-winning Dance Academy TV series, stimulus for over 100 teaching activities that explore themes of Dance Skills, Dance Knowledge, Health and Wellbeing and Production.

Dance Academy: Arts Education is a bonus resource that supports the recent release of Dance Academy to the Australian education market, with all three series now available for schools to buy from the ACTF Shop.

With Dance Academy offering such vast Australian Curriculum applicability; The Arts (Dance, Drama, Media, and Visual), English and Health and Physical Education (Personal Development); the bonus teachers’ website provides expertly written strategies and activity ideas that integrate the series into their classrooms with ease.
