Tasdance understands that every school is different and flexibility is important. Our full-ensemble residencies are the perfect way for us to reach all of your students and to develop vibrant and curriculum-relevant performance outcomes. With 5-6 dancers, we can tailor our residencies to the individual needs of the school and student groups we work with. Residencies can range in length from a two days to a week. Some of the areas we focus on are:
- Special needs
- Teacher professional learning
- Or, we can customize a residence to your needs including theme relevant to students’ other learning areas

Learning Through Dance (formerly MEDAL)
Learning Through Dance is a long-term cross-curricular residency program, developed in view of the STEAM philosophy (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics). Tailored for a primary school setting, Tasdance will harness your students’ creativity to develop literacy and numeracy through dance. For a minimum of 2.5 hours per week, one of Tasdance’s professional dance educators takes up residency for one to four terms, working with students on an ongoing basis.
We recommend 2 sessions of 2.5 hours per week as optimal.
Cost: $157 per 2.5 hour session
Minimum commitment: one school term
Teacher professional learning
Teacher professional learning can be incorporated into any of the offerings above, or as a stand-alone residency or workshop.
Tasdance is also considering holding an in-house teacher professional learning workshop, proposed date, on 12th May 2017. The program will go ahead based on teacher interest.
Tasdance has limited spaces available in 2017, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
