In 2022 I was thrilled to work on a project for the ballet, jazz and tap syllabus that we teach. I worked with the examiner board from Southern Federation of Dance to achieve Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority accreditation for levels 7-10 Tap, levels 7-9 Jazz and Pre-Elementary to Intermediate classical ballet.
This means that dancers all over Queensland who sit these high level exams in year 11 and 12 will receive a point towards their Queensland Certificate of Education – a wonderful recognition of their dedication to pursuing extra curricular activities. (Level 10 Jazz and Advanced Classical are being added to the schedule this year too!)
As a studio, we are excited to assist our dancers with several vocational courses (e.g, Certificate III in dance) that can count towards their QCE and ATAR. Stay tuned for a special announcement in the coming months regarding further pathways for our DanceStep student teacher training program too!
