Professional Development

Miss Stacey and I are in the process of becoming accredited to teach the new ADA AcroDance and the ADA Contemporary Dance Syllabi. We recently attended our first workshop to learn all about Progressing Ballet Technique. We had lots of fun learning different ways to further develop and accelerate students' strength and technique.

On Monday 25th January, the ADA held a zoom session with dance teachers from Carins to Brisbane to progress this training.
