Approved Dance Centre
The Company is proud to provide the opportunity to obtain the following ISTD teaching qualifications; Level 3 Diploma in Dance Instruction (DDI) and Level 4 Diploma in Dance Education (DDE). The DDI is aimed at those who wish to begin training as a dance teacher and the DDE offers those who have already achieved their Level 3, the opportunity to complete their training and become a fully qualified and regulated ISTD dance teacher.
We currently offer the qualifications in both Modern Theatre and Tap Dance genres, tutored by Aaron Lissimore FISTD & Jessica Morgan-Beale FISTD.
To dance is to share – to share is to teach.
From health and safety to the contextual study of dance, practical observation of teaching to planning, evaluating and leading your own dance classes, a regulated initial teaching qualification not only makes you much more employable, but fully prepares you for the day when you might open your own dance school.
Both the DDI and DDE are regulated by the Regulatory Bodies in England and Wales and (Ofqual for England and Northern Ireland, and the Department of Education and Skills for the Welsh Assembly) and are on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and award 68 and 92 QCF credits accordingly. This means that, as well as standing alone as respected dance teaching qualifications that give you the opportunity to teach across a wide variety of dance genres, they can contribute towards other higher level qualifications.
