DanceStep Assistant Teacher Education Program
Kreationz Cheer and Dance is a registered affiliate studio and member of the DanceStep program. DanceStep is an assistant teaching training program which empowers students to be leaders and role models within the dance studio, at school and the wider community.
DanceStep, a four level Student Teacher Education Program, builds on this philosophy and provides a progressive and formalised process including both practical and theoretical components.
The DanceStep program covers assistant teaching skills such as Safe Dance principles, anatomy, behaviour management including different learning needs and styles, to name just a few.
Whether students would like to consider a career in dance teaching or otherwise, the DanceStep program is a great preparation for many aspects of life.
The DanceStep program is open to students from ten years of age. All potential assistant teachers must have danced with Kreationz for a minimum of one year, and are required to apply for a position in the program.
