Dance Teacher Training Programs

Online training for Dance Teachers – see the free intro offer

Jen Dalton’s life philosophy is centred on empowering & educating dance teachers to be the best and most effective leaders that they can be. Giving them the tools to make a positive impact in each and every life they come into contact with. She has utilised this philosophy when building detailed dance teacher training courses.

Having successfully run & owned multiple dance studios for over 20yrs with over 1000 students, managing teams of over 30 teachers & staff members at one time, she knows the importance of strategy, planning & continual learning…

A well as teaching and running the studios, Jen studied as a Police Officer for 13yrs working in the Child Protection & Sex Crimes Squad, studied Psychology (PSY111) & Communications (COM120) at CSU, Health & Fitness (SRF40206) and Dance Teaching & Management (CUA50311) it was only natural that the next step was to collate that information into dance industry language and make it easy, quick & available for dancers & teachers across the world.

It is Jen’s intention to create a world-wide community of like-minded dance educators who together will support, encourage & lead with intention to give everything we have to our students.

Requirements vary slightly from state-to-state, however similar strategies, policies & practices across the nation is a united way to ensure you studio is a child safe organisation.

Included are templates, examples & ideas for you to use.  Simply print and complete the templates and create your child safe portfolio.

Concert Fun at Wahroonga Dance Studio

You may notice when you get your first invoice, that there is something called a costume deposit fee on there and you think to yourself ‘I didn’t order a uniform or costume, why am I being charged for this?’

We get asked this question a lot, so we thought we would clear it up by writing a blog post devoted to it.

The costume deposit fee is a payment that is made each term for 4 terms, to pay for the beautiful costume that your dancer gets to wear at our End of Year Concert in November. Now a costume is not the same as the class uniform that your child wears each week. The costumes are supplied from both Australian and overseas companies and are the beautiful, high quality outfits that your dancers get to wear up on the stage (and keep for years after!)

Below are some examples of costumes we have purchased in the past… Aren’t they gorgeous?!
