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.
With effect from 1 February 2021, all sessions of “An Introduction to Safe Dance Practice in MOE Schools” will be conducted online, replacing all face-to-face classes.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
All Dance CCA instructors who are currently working in MOE schools, and new Dance CCA instructors who plan to apply to be an MOE-registered instructor with a specialisation in Dance must attend and pass this course.
