MOE and NAC values the importance of safe dance practice. It is of utmost importance that Dance Co-Curricular Activity (CCA) instructors acquire the essential knowledge and skills of safe dance practice so that they can adopt sound training approaches to help students build dance skills progressively, with minimal risk of injury.
In view of this emphasis, MOE, in partnership with the NAC, has appointed Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) to mount a mandatory baseline training course, “An Introduction to Safe Dance Practice in MOE Schools” for all Dance CCA instructors in schools. This introductory course aims to equip these instructors with basic working knowledge and skills, to ensure students’ well-being and optimal learning.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
All new or currently registered MOE Dance CCA instructors are required to successfully complete the course before they are allowed to register with MOE from 1 January 2021 onwards.
Priority for registration will be granted to dance instructors who are currently teaching MOE-CCA based programmes and/or currently registered with MOE’s Registry of Instructors for Schools.
