Eastern Region Transition Program
From the success of the ER Boys Enrichment came a request to offer a program for girls. The Girls Dance Coaching Clinic is a project targeting Stage 5 dancers from 2 ER Secondary Schools aimed at:
- building capacity in teaching dance and contributing to a wider school community dance network
- strengthening composition & performance skills
Dancers were selected according to leadership and performance skills. The model is a two tiered structure consisting of:
- A Training Day where dancers were mentored in how to structure a dance workshop including warm up and focussed dance styles. Student collaboration produced 3 dance routines in the style of Musical Theatre, Jazz and Contemporary. These were filmed and a resource developed for online learning and rehearsal.
- Coaching Clinics where year 4 girls from ten local feeder schools attend a day of dance at their local Secondary Catholic College.
In 2018 it is anticipated that this model will be expanded to include another 3 secondary schools.
